Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Program Implementation and Strategic Planning Committee, Muhammad Al-Baldawi, confirmed, on Sunday, that there is an Iraqi will to implement the Chinese agreement and the completion of the Faw port and the dry canal, but it is constrained by American restrictions and pressures .
Al-Baldawi said that "the implementation of the Iraqi-Chinese agreement will transfer Iraq to the ranks of countries with great economic power, especially if the port of Al-Faw and the dry canal is completed, which will be the beginning of the Silk Road that will link Asia with Europe ."
He added that "the implementation of the agreement faces a challenge and American pressure despite the presence of the Iraqi will to implement it, but the executive will is constrained by those pressures," noting that "the United States of America felt danger when this agreement was concluded, as it rushed to arrange the visit of the Iraqi delegation to Washington ."
Al-Baldawi pointed out that "in the event of the completion of the port and dry canal project and the implementation of all Chinese agreements, the oil resources of the treasury will be secondary."
