0 107

Iraq’s oil ministry on Thursday denied a media report citing Oil Minister Ihsan Abdul Jabbar as saying an agreement was imminent with the OPEC+ group to increase Iraq’s crude oil exports.

State news agency INA had quoted Abdul Jabbar as telling state-owned daily newspaper al-Sabah that he expected to reach an agreement soon with OPEC and its allies – known as OPEC+ – over increasing Iraq’s crude oil exports

“The oil minister did not make these comments and did not meet the newspaper’s reporter,” oil ministry spokesman Asim Jihad told Reuters. The INA article has since been deleted.
