Bolton welcomes Kirkuk oil exports resumption between Iraq, Kurdistan

John Bolton, the US national security adviser, welcomed the resumption of the exportation of Kirkuk oil following a deal struck between Kurdistan and Iraq.

The deal was signed by the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government. It is expected that the deal will result in the exportation of between 50,000 to 100,000 barrels per day.

Bolton described the deal as "promising first step to return to 2017 levels," adding that resuming oil exports can "restore lost revenue" for Iraqi people and services and make Iraq energy independent.
