Iraq-Kuwait dispute over port

Iraqis say Kuwait's Mubarak al-Kabeer port encroaches on its territorial waters.

    Iraq and Kuwait are locked in a dispute over a port that Bagdad says the latter is building by encroaching on its territorial waters.

    Iraqis argue the construction of the Mubarak al-Kabeer port would choke off the battle-scarred country’s only access to international shipping lanes.

    Kuwait says they are ready to sign an agreement to guarantee its project will not hinder the construction of Iraq’s own Faw Grand Port.
