Middle East Countries Don’t Trust Turkey Print E-mail

Iraq is warning Turkey over Kurdistan pipeline deal. The government of Iraq has warned Turkey it must obtain Baghdad’s permission to build new pipelines carrying oil and gas from the Kurdish autonomous region in the north.

BBC News reports that, “Turkey made the deal directly with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) on Sunday, without Baghdad’s approval.”

Diplomatic relations between Ankara and Baghdad have deteriorated drastically in recent days.

“Instead,” according to the BBC, “Turkey is focusing on closer ties with the KRG, which is locked in a dispute with Iraq’s central government over who can sell the country’s oil.”

Jonathan Head of the BBC in Istanbul claims that Turkey’s decade-long strategy to build friendly, trade-based relations with all its neighbors is unraveling quickly.
