Rank #1: Energy Politics: Turkey’s Troubles with Erbil and Baghdad
Turkey and the KRG have a complicated energy relationship. Ankara is the KRG’s main conduit for oil exports and, up until about a week ago, was the KRG’s most important ally in its squabbles with Baghdad. Now the tables have turned and the Turks and Baghdad are best friends, so much so that their militaries are LARPing on the border and issuing vague statements about what may come next.
What is the current state of Turkish-Kurdish energy relations? What explains Turkey’s about face? And can the Turkish government really turn off the tap? To talk through these issues, Aaron talks to Patrick Osgood, the former Kurdistan Bureau Chief for the Iraq Oil Report and, now, a consultant on energy related issues.
