and of his part, economist Ismail Abdul Hussein: that the ability of energy export Iraqi crude oil amounted to two million and (600) thousand barrels day of issue (600) thousand barrels exported via the Ceyhan while a million and a half million barrels of oil to two million barrels of oil a day pass through Hormuz, which makes closing a disaster for the country.
said Abdul Hussein (of the Agency news): that Iraq does not have any solutions to get out of this crisis, the fact that Iran is determined to shut down and this is suicide for Iran as it will affect the economies of the world at a rate of (40% to 45%), both countries have been exported or imported.
He pointed to: that the general budget for this year and has developed on the basis of sale price of a barrel of oil at (85) dollars and the total oil revenue would be the general budget, but when you close the Strait of Hormuz would lose Iraq more than (50) billion, or more than half of the financial allocations of the general budget, the fact that Iraq is initializer of this economic shock at the moment.
He continued: that Iraq is able to maneuver and transport to export oil from the Strait of Hormuz to another port, adding that the Ministry of Oil was going to re-oil pipelines stretching across Syria, but the situation is stable which led to the postponement of the subject.
He stressed: the presence of signs by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to move closer to Iraq and cooperation with him on all levels, political, economic, and open the Embassy of the Kingdom in Baghdad in addition to opening up the domestic market, this gives a positive thing for the return of common interests between the two countries, calling for the exploitation of these circumstances, especially after the Arab summit conference and agreement with the Saudi side to rehabilitate the pipeline oil forsaken and Trans- Saudi Arabia up to the Red Sea.
For a member of the Committee on Energy and Oil MP / National Alliance / Susan Saad said: The closure of the Strait of Hormuz by Iranian side will impact negatively on the Iraqi economy is being supported by (95%) on oil revenues and the percentage (80%) of the Energy export of Iraqi crude oil pass through it.

She added that Iraq if you seek to open ports other export it takes time not a little and effort high because it would be negotiations and agreements with the side that will extend through which the pipeline of the Iraqi oil, and perhaps the crisis gets and it is complete.
while saw the head of the International Federation of businessmen Iraqi Hamid punitive: that the closure of Hormuz by Iran will not only affect exports of Iraqi oil only, but it will affect the transport of goods to traders Iraqis that the country is a consumer and relies on imports outside.

said Jeweler in an earlier statement (of the Agency news): The closure of the Strait of Hormuz, this means that Iran will stop (400) thousand barrels of its exports through this strait, noting that Iran’s oil exports pass through this Strait mostly go to the States, which refused to impose sanctions on Iran, like China, India and Russia.
He pointed to: that China is able to buy all the oil exports of Iran, and Iran will use this strait to export its oil, and not Bmsalehtha to close it, but just a threat to some countries.
