Turkey has reportedly struck a massive oil and gas agreement with Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government, a move that would strain Ankara's ties with the US and the central government in Baghdad.

According to a Monday report by The New York Times the Kurds in Iraq have agreed to supply Turkey with at least 10 billion cubic meters of gas every year through a natural gas pipeline whose construction is part of the deal.
