Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said that “Iraq is selling oil at the price of $ 23 a barrel,” adding that “the significant decline in oil prices last year and this year, the impact on the country’s economy,” accusing “Turkey established Daash entity and it aspires to re-State Ottoman “.
He pointed Abadi in an interview with CNBC on the sidelines of the Davos economic conference in Switzerland that “the situation is difficult, just as last year was difficult this year, was the tie-barrel price in our budget is $ 57 per barrel, but we did not get in the end However, the $ 45 a barrel, and this was very hard on us, and this year we have identified the breakeven price of oil at $ 45 a barrel, but we sell it now versus 23 or $ 24 a barrel, and these conditions tough for us.
“He continued,” Currently we are making victory over the Daash, We were able to edit large parts of Iraq from the control Daash, and elements of the organization are now fugitives currently has defeated in many areas, and we put a plan to expel Daash from Iraq in the year 2016, and we are working on sending additional troops to the north of the country for the Liberation of Mosul and Nineveh from Daash This is another an important stronghold of the organization.
“Among Abadi” It is clear that the Daash are losing steam, and during the week or the last two weeks we noticed they lowered the salaries they pay to the terrorists, and that means that we win them and stop their funding.
“He said,” Unfortunately Daash was getting money from somewhere, and not all the people united to stop the smuggling operations by Daash and finance who receives it, but we are making the desired results, but the significant decline in oil prices last year and this year, the impact on us too much, we must continue in our fight against Daash, and to maintain the sustainability of our economy .
“the prime minister said” Iraq depends on oil for many years, has been accomplished in the Iraqi government a package of reforms succeeded where, where we have reduced government spending a great deal, and as a result, corruption will fall, of course, so there are a lot of corrupt who are trying to block our efforts, but they have not succeeded so far, and I hope that they can succeed, we are fighting three wars now: one with Daash, and one with the corrupt, and the third on the economic front, and make great efforts in the fight.
“He said,” The sixteen Iraqi province of origin Eighteen province is blessed currently safe, and there are many multinational state companies that operate in Iraq, including the international oil companies, which is safe and business is thriving, and I can guarantee her safety, and Iraq is a great opportunity for them, yes there are challenges We understand that, but we are faced with these challenges.
“” I think that Iraq has a lot of untapped potential yet, and can be exploited, Iraqi society is very strong stood in the face of terrorism and challenged him strongly, as we move forward, if my message is very clear, we were conducting talks with international oil companies in order to balance between oil production and prices and determine the cost of a barrel, yet I think that a large cost and this is not sustainable with low-oil current prices.
“Ebadi said,” We have a reform process underway, and we have reduced government spending by a very large, and we making victory, and there was not a popular attack us in return, but the Iraqi people show his understanding of the situation, but I think we will face a major challenge in the future because we are forced to use a lot of our resources to fight Daash.
“stressed the Prime Minister” should the army give what it needs to fight Daash , and he needs to, ammunition, weapons and equipment and resources on a sustainable basis, and this is the reason for our presence here to Davos, we are in talks with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and with many multinational companies that are willing to help Iraq as we have seen. I was pleased that they were are meeting our request, and this sign is very encouraging.
“And required international support for Iraq Abadi said: In the past we need three things [training, weapons, air support and now we have a fourth requirement is economic support, we do not need funds cash, but we need additional facilities, Iraq has enormous potential and we will not Nvels, Iraq oil producer, and contains a lot of opportunities and we will be in a much better future status compared with now, and this is what now look forward to it, and we get some support, but we expect more support, and we hope through our contacts here and in other places that we get this support. ”
and the crisis between Iran and Saudi Arabia, said the Iraqi prime minister, “it certainly is not good as dragging the whole to sectarian conflict zone which will not help us at a time when fighting where our enemy Daash, and I have to here to warn everyone of Daash of gravity and its unique ability to corrupt young people a serious matter experienced by Syria, Iraq, and should not be given the opportunity now.
“” The solution for this is to find a political solution in Syria, there is a process ongoing and is slow in my opinion, and must be characterized by force to achieve further progress and application, otherwise the situation as we see it now in Syria, there is an increase in refugees who got their numbers from 10 to 11 million people both inside and outside Syria.
“He added,” The Syrian economy has been affected Fully Besides infrastructure, the situation now is not in the interest of one, Terrorism, which in Syria Pat goes out to the rest of the deferral, and as we have seen what happened in Istanbul, Paris and Jakarta, which indicates the seriousness of the terrorist organization called Daash, but if we joined forces, we will be able directed towards the fight against Daash and expelled from Syria.
“and around the nation between Baghdad and Erbil Abadi said,” We are working together, particularly with the Kurds inside Iraq, and we are also working with the Kurds inside Syria, but there is a problem in Turkey, Turkey is the Kurds basic her problem more of Daash, and this is a problem for us, who are currently fighting the PKK and other other Kurdish elements in Turkey has sought their war into Iraq, they are also responding to expand their operations to Syria.
“He added,” For us, this poses a concern, Fbaatviade Turkey wants to return to the glories of the Ottoman Empire, I do not think there is a place for it in the region, we must maintain a good relationship with our neighbor Turkey, we have made a great effort to maintain this good relationship, and I, as the Prime Minister of Iraq, eager to improve our relationship with Turkey, something we’ve done before, but crossing the Turkish military units to Iraq is not useful at all, I do not see any role for them in the fight against Daash in Mosul because they do not do it.
“He added,” If they want to [Turkey] fight Daash, they exist on their borders with Syria, They can fight Daash there, and is not useful in my opinion, to be Turkey’s ambitions in Iraqi territory, this is not beneficial for them and for us, and I think they should change the priorities of the Kurds considered their problem so Daash is becoming a fundamental problem, and I think that some of the objectives of the bombing by Daash in Turkey is something that should be a warning to the Turks and must take him seriously.
“He Abadi hope” to step up Turkey fight for Daash ,, but do not forget that he had had a Daash in the previous relations with the leaders of the Turkish and we have some evidence they are aware of this, I think that the establishment of Daash entity was through Turkey, and it must be stopped that, but the Turks understand they tell us otherwise and they are eager to fight Daash, but I tell them that I do not see any evidence of that and I hope to see what proves their words “.anthy
