IRBIL, Iraq (AP) - Iranian semi-official Tasnim news agency says Iran has stopped importing and exporting oil products to the Iraqi Kurdistan region since Monday. The report did not elaborate.
 
Earlier this week Iran closed its borders with Iraqi Kurdistan following a referendum on support for independence from Iraq.
 
Turkey had also said on Thursday that it agreed to deal only with Baghdad on oil exports from the Kurdish region.
 
In defiance of Baghdad, the self-ruled Kurdish region has been unilaterally exporting crude oil produced in their region and contested areas through Turkey.
