IRBIL, July 31 (KUNA) -- The government of Iraq's Kurdistan province Friday condemned the Kurdish Workers
Party's (PKK) bombing of a pipeline used to ship oil from the region to Turkey.
The government, in a statement, said the attack took place against the pipeline inside the Turkish territories.
It said Kurdistan was already suffering from lack of financial resources because Baghdad failed to send the
budget coupled with the war against ISIL, and proceeds of oil shipped through this pipeline were the only
resource to pay wages.
The province will export oil through Iraq's oil marketing company (SOMO), it added.
PKK claimed responsibility for bombing the pipeline as well as a gas pipeline from Iran to Turkey.
Kurdistan announced in July it was selling its own oil because of unsolved differences with Baghdad.
