Iraqi oil ministry spokesman Assem Jihad clarified that Iraq continues exports outside the quota system for the time being, but it will start negotiations with OPEC when he arrives its production to four million barrels per day, and not three million.
Jihad said in a statement made by Radio Free Iraq that even in case of agreement with OPEC on the entry of the quota system, Iraq's share must be commensurate with large reserves and exports available, he pointed out that OPEC must take into account that Iraq has a long period of oil exports, when you think about to return once again to a quota system for export.
