The press reports have quoted yesterday from the Deputy Prime Minister of the Federal Energy Affairs Hussain al-Shahristani as saying that Baghdad and Erbil have reached a joint agreement on the export of oil through the region, the national oil marketing company «Sumo».
At the same effect revealed a local official in the province of Dohuk in the Kurdistan region, on Sunday, for the hundreds of residents of the city demonstrated in front of the provincial council building in protest against the policies of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and cut salaries for employees and retirees of the province,

[millionday] so we see that they want to export directly without monitoring at all and this is not going to happen -- the marketing company SOMO is the best way to go and they have even moved past the issue of just placing the money in a place that is controlled through the kurds and iraq with transparency -- so we see he is a little unreasonable and with the pressure we see there -- we would expect some resolve from the previous meeting we just read about

" It is said that the central government and the Kurdistan region are suffering from problems in the relationship between them is the legitimacy of Baghdad in overseeing the export of oil from the Kurdistan region and the differences on the budget and entitlements of the oil companies operating in the region.
[millionday] so to me it seems the issue would resolve by the use of the dfi or dfk accounts -- obviously they should come to an agreement quickly so we shall see
[millionday] very plain way to put it if you ask me
[millionday] with the budget reading coming up on tuesday they must have some kind of hope or they would not have it on agenda -- makes sense
[awesomedtl] It's obvious everything is predicated on budget hard believe it would rv prior
[millionday] i would say all is being done at the same time -- i would not be surprised if they set rates before the budget
[millionday] so we should see the preparation of the agenda for parliament and also more statements concerning resolve and also the response from Baghdad
