APIKUR statement on President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s visit to Iraq


April 23, 2024

APIKUR member companies are hopeful that the visit to Iraq by President of Türkiye Recep Tayyip  Erdoğan will be a step towards a mutually beneficial resolution between the Governments of Türkiye,  Iraq, the Kurdistan Region, and International Oil Companies to restore exports through the Iraq Türkiye pipeline (ITP).  

In the past week, the elected leaders of Iraq, Türkiye, Kurdistan Region, as well as the United States  have spoken about the importance of reopening the ITP export route.  

For the benefit of all Iraqi people and our stakeholders, APIKUR member companies are ready to  resume exports pending agreement to current fiscal terms and surety of past and future payments  with the Government of Iraq and the Kurdistan Regional Government.
