The Cabinet of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki approved a U-S-backed draft oil law, and the Parliament is expected to start discussing it next week.
The law, which institutes privileges for foreign companies at a level unseen anywhere else in the Middle East, has been challenged both inside and outside Iraq.
The Iraqi oil workers union went on a strike last month to protest the law. KBOO News spoke with British analyst Greg Muttit (MUTT-it) about the law.
