Zebari said that "it proves the central government's commitment to respect the agreement of the Kurdish oil policies."

The agreement aims to help Iraq to increase its exports of oil, at a time when revenues have been adversely affected by the decline in world oil prices and the costs of the current mark to fight terrorist elements Daash.
