Al-Shibli said in a televised statement: "The Korean company has started work on port projects since the beginning of the year 2021, and five berths have been completed out of a total of 90 berths."
He added, "The contract of the Korean company is the best, and other offers for the construction of the large Faw port are immature."
The minister continued: "The port of Al-Faw will not be complete and will not be fully functional, without the completion of the dry canal and the railway line that complement it."
He explained that: "It was agreed with an Italian company to develop the basic designs for the railway line from Basra to Turkey, passing through Baghdad, and the contract will be signed before the end of this year."/ End[/rtl]
