Iraqi foreign minister Hoshiar Zibari visited Moscow to meet Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, minister of industry and energy Viktor Khristenko and LUKOIL president Vagit Alekperov. “We invited LUKOIL president to visit Baghdad for negotiations. Bear it in mind that the U.S. ConocoPhilips owns a stake in LUKOIL”, said Mr.Zibari in an interview. “Discussions have been underway since February, and all parliamentary groups were about to approve oil legislation including a provision that all oil export revenues should go to the federal budget and further be fairly distributed between the regions. It’s been decided that Iraq will establish Federal Oil and Gas Council that will handle all contracts”, Mr.Zibari added.
