Iraq as an energy partner?
Global energy shortages as an instrument of power
Since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine, Germany has been looking for ways to diversify its energy imports. Iraq has extensive resources in fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas. So far, however, ties between Berlin and Baghdad in the energy sector have been weak - a circumstance that is unlikely to change in the near future. Nevertheless, Germany should work for a stronger partnership with the country in this area.
