Baghdad warned international companies that signing contracts without coordinating them with the authorities constituted “gross interference in Iraq’s internal affairs, the violation of its national sovereignty and a clear violation of international norms,” according to a Iraqi Oil Ministry announced in a statement.

​According to the statement, the ministry and the government have the right to apply to local or international courts for the protection of national interests, Sputnik reported.

The ministry stressed that contracts concluded with the Iraqi Kurdistan region’s separatist administration rather than with federal authorities are illegal and the state is not obliged to comply with them.
