Cancellation of 4th Phase of Mubarak Port Welcomed
By John Lee.
The Kuwaiti government has announced the cancellation of the fourth stage of the Mubarak Port, reports AKnews, due to harm to Iraqi navigation.
Iraq’s Ministry of Transport called it an important step, but it does not eliminate the damage to Iraqi navigation.
An adviser to the ministry, Karim al-Nouri, said: “We consider stopping the fourth stage as goodwill and we hope that it will contribute to resolving the rest of outstanding issues with Kuwait.”
Kuwait laid the foundation stone for the new giant port on Bubiyan island in April last year.
