Deputy - Delaying completion of the Grand Port of Faw is considered a betrayal of the country[Baghdad-Where]
MP Mansour Al-Baiji considered, on Saturday, the large port of Faw, the economic lifeline for Iraq, and the delay in achieving it is a betrayal of the country.
And Al-Baiji demanded, in a statement. The Iraqi government to “expedite the completion of the project of the great port of Faw, and there should be no delay in completing this port, which will be the economic artery of the country through its important location through the entry and exit of goods and ships, in addition to the employment of Iraqi manpower.”
He stated, “The delay in completing the large port of Faw is considered a betrayal of the country. Therefore, the matter requires the government to allocate the necessary sums of money to complete the port as soon as possible and not to delay further in its completion.”
Al-Baiji added, “We categorically reject the railway connection with Kuwait because we do not need it, and we support the completion of the great Faw port, which will contribute to the completion of the Silk Road, which will be considered the era of the country’s project, and the competent authorities must advance the interest over their own interests in the country.”
He added, “The interest of the country must be defended, as Kuwait does, by demanding the railway link with Iraq and obstructing it to establish the large port of Faw, which is a natural right for Iraq, but unfortunately Kuwait has a negative stance on this important port for our country. Therefore, we demand Al-Kazimi to allocate sufficient funds for the construction of the port.” And he refused to link the railways with Kuwait, because the country would benefit from this project
