Baghdad/Al-Masala Al-Hadath: The Iraqi Prime Minister, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, today, Thursday, renewed Iraq’s commitment to the relevant Security Council resolutions between Iraq and Kuwait, the principles of international law, common understandings, good neighbourliness, and the territorial sovereignty and integrity of the State of Kuwait.
During his meeting with his Kuwaiti counterpart, Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, on the sidelines of his participation in the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Al-Sudani expressed “Iraq’s desire to continue holding joint committee meetings, and to exchange visits between officials and experts in the two countries, in all fields.” “.
For his part, the Kuwaiti Prime Minister affirmed his country’s desire to finalize the demarcation of the maritime borders with Iraq beyond nautical mark 162, explaining that the Iraqi ruling regarding the regulation of maritime navigation in Khor Abdullah has “historical fallacies.”
Tensions escalated between Kuwait and Iraq after the Iraqi Federal Supreme Court ruled that the Iraqi Parliament’s ratification of the agreement regulating navigation in the “Khor Abdullah” waterway between the two countries was unconstitutional.
The Iraqi court says, in the merits of its ruling, that “the ratification of international treaties and agreements should be by law enacted by a two-thirds majority of the members of the House of Representatives.”
The State of Kuwait announced earlier its objection to the decision issued by the Iraqi Federal Court declaring the unconstitutionality of the law ratifying the agreement “regulating navigation in Khor Abdullah.”
