Kurds say Exxon still working in N Iraq
Baghdad, March 17, 2012
The government of Iraq's autonomous region believes Exxon Mobil has not suspended its work there, an aide to the Kurdish president said on Saturday.
Iraq's oil minister said on Friday that Exxon had written to Baghdad informing it that it had frozen its work in the Kurdish region, under a deal which Baghdad considers illegal.
"We've never heard anything like this from Exxon Mobil. We have continuous meetings with Exxon Mobil's senior executives and I think the company is continuing its work," said Fuad Hussein, senior aide to Kurdish President Masoud Barzani. – Reuters
