WASHINGTON - The US State Department said on Tuesday it has warned Exxon Mobil and other US firms of the risks of signing contracts in Iraq without nation-wide approval, but would not say whether it talked with Exxon before it struck a controversial oil deal in Iraq's Kurdistan region.

Earlier, a top Iraqi official said Baghdad would slap sanctions on Exxon by the end of the year over the deal.
