Iraq's Maliki warns Kurds of funding cuts if they pipe oil exports to Turkey

BAGHDAD, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki threatened on Sunday to cut central government funding for Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan region if the Kurds pursued a drive to pipe oil exports to Turkey without Baghdad’s approval.

“This is a constitutional violation which we will never allow, not for the (Kurdistan) region nor for the Turkish government,” Maliki told Reuters in an interview.
