Article: “OPEC Secretary General calls on oil producing countries to increase production” It was not too long ago that the “Oil and Petroleum Exporting Countries” came to an agreement (unanimous, if I recall correctly) to work together on regulating the production of oil, as a sort of “emergency” measure to keep the markets under control in some uncertain times. They all agreed to control their production. They made a big deal out of it. Iraq’s position in this agreement is HUGE… mostly because they are barely even mentioned in all 39 of those pages!!!
