Kirkuk-Ankara-Brussels Line

Professor Huseyin Bagci
When speaking about the Middle East he mentioned an unusual new pipeline which will likely stir up much debate in Turkey and the Middle East. Talking about the European Union's midterm policy planning he said that the prospects of a new line was emerging which should affect the EU's policies. This is the Kirkuk-Ankara-Brussels pipeline. Not Tehran, not Baghdad but Kirkuk. Kirkuk was here mentioned for the first time by any European politician and now analyst.
