ARBIL, Iraq, (Reuters) – Iraqi Kurdish authorities agreed in a meeting with their Iraqi counterparts in Baghdad to resume halted oil exports from their region “at the start of February,” the office of the Kurdish prime minister said.

A statement issued to Reuters by the office of regional Prime Minister Barham Salih said the resumption of exports from the region was agreed in a meeting on Monday with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

There was no immediate confirmation from the Iraqi government, which said last May it had approved a deal with the Kurds and expected Kurdish oil exports to resume quickly.
