Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Washington has pressured companies and governments not to buy crude from the Kurdish Regional Government Kurdistan RegionG), but it has stopped short of banning U.S. firms from buying it outright.

The Kurdish Regional Government Kurdistan RegionG) has renewed its push for an independent state amid the latest violence roiling Iraq. Its relationship with Baghdad has deteriorated over what it sees as Maliki’s role in stoking the crisis and over the long-running dispute over oil sales.

On Thursday Carlos Pascual, head of the U.S. State Department’s Energy Bureau, told Reuters that there had been no change of policy in Washington towards Kurdish independent oil sales, but he said he hoped the central government and the region could reach an agreement in time.

Baghdad has threatened to sue anyone that buys Kurdish oil.

“We have made people aware that whatever they buy entails certain risks, and we have consistently told them about that,” Pascual said after a talk at Washington’s Carnegie Endowment.

“At some point Baghdad and Erbil have to come to an understanding of how the development and the export of those resources can contribute to Iraq’s overall development,” he said in a speech, one of his last official events before taking up a fellowship at Columbia University in New York.

Pascual said that without a deal, conflict between the two sides risked becoming “more acute”. /End/

(IraqiNews.com) On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted by a large majority in favor of the decision to prevent U.S. President Barack Obama from sending American troops “to play any combat role continuously” in Iraq without the approval of the Congress. Congress adopted the resolution by 370 members and 40 opposing. This embodies the strong desire on the part of Republicans and Democrats that the White House should not move alone in the Iraqi issue without the support of the Congress. This vote is largely symbolic.

This decision stated by a proposal from Democratic Rep. Jim McGovern and a member of the Democratic Barbara Lee and Rep. Walter Jones.

The Members of the House of Representatives in favor of the decision said that Congress should regain control over allowing the use of military force after years in which Democratic and Republican presidents got the executive powers that allow them to send troops.

McGovern said in a speech to the Council before the vote, “Congress has abandoned many of its powers to the executive branch.”
