KRG Refutes Reports of Taking Over Oilfields in Kirkuk by Force

ERBIL — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has refuted reports claiming that the regional government took over oilfields in north of the disputed Kurdish province of Kirkuk, calling the accusations as "baseless".

"The Kurdistan Regional Government denies all allegations that the KRG, with the support of the armed forces, has taken over Bay Hassan and Dawd Gurg oil fields in Kirkuk, which are operated by the North Oil Company (NOC)," KRG Spokesperson Jotiar Adil said in a statement.

Adil further added that it is clearly stipulated in the Iraqi Constitution that natural resources are the property of "all Iraqis and not of a single company."

"The North Oil Company has, for years, without the presence of an oil and gas law, working in opposition to the Constitution. If they are willing to work towards a resolution to outstanding issues, let the oil and gas law be implemented as per the Iraqi Constitution."

He also stressed that this campaign against the Kurdistan Region is "purely political and without legal basis," pointing out that such allegations against the region are "completely untrue and are aimed at sowing discord and agitating against the rights of the Kurdistan Region’s oil."
