The representative of Basra Governorate, Rafiq Hashem, confirmed, on Monday, that the caretaker government has approved the “Aqaba Pipe” project in the absence of the House of Representatives, which is a violation for which it will be held accountable.
Hashem said in a statement to the "Information" agency, "We in Parliament do not allow Iraq's wealth to go abroad, and the Aqaba Pipe will stand against it in Parliament and we will hold everyone involved in it accountable," noting that "the Aqaba project was approved in the absence of the House of Representatives."
He added that "the caretaker government cannot ratify projects that pertain to the country, and the House of Representatives is concerned with that," noting that "the Aqaba pipeline project will be reviewed again in the current parliament session."
He pointed out, "We in the House of Representatives will hold all parties involved in the Aqaba pipeline accountable, as it is a project that serves foreign interests and has no financial returns."
The economic analyst, Younis Al-Kaabi, had confirmed, earlier, that the extension of the Aqaba pipeline from Basra to Jordan, Egypt and then the Zionist entity came in response to American, regional and Arab pressures, while noting that Iraq is the biggest loser of the project.
