    Shafaq News/ Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, representative of the Emir of the State of Kuwait, renewed on Tuesday his country’s position rejecting the decision of the Federal Supreme Court in Iraq regarding the unconstitutionality of the “Khor Abdullah” agreement concluded to regulate maritime navigation between the two countries.
    This came in a speech delivered by the Crown Prince this morning during the opening of a legislative session of the Kuwaiti National Assembly.
    In his speech, Al-Sabah considered the Iraqi Federal Court’s ruling “in violation of all international agreements, laws and conventions,” stressing his country’s commitment to those international agreements and laws.
    On September 4, the Federal Supreme Court (the highest judicial authority in Iraq) ruled that the law ratifying the maritime navigation agreement in Khor Abdullah with Kuwait was unconstitutional.
    The Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs had handed the Iraqi ambassador to Kuwait a memorandum of protest against the Federal Court’s ruling regarding the agreement to regulate navigation in Khor Abdullah.
    The agreement to regulate maritime navigation in Khor Abdullah is an international border agreement between Iraq and Kuwait, ratified in Baghdad on November 25, 2013 in implementation of Resolution No. 833 issued by the Security Council in 1993 after several decisions that followed the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, and to complete the procedures Demarcating the borders between the two countries, and setting an accurate definition of their coordinates on the basis of the agreement concluded between the two countries after the independence of Kuwait in 1961.
    This agreement led to the division of Khor Abdullah between the two countries, which is located in the far north of the Arabian Gulf between the Iraqi Al-Faw Peninsula and both the Kuwaiti islands of Boubyan and Warba, where the navigational corridor located at the meeting point of the navigational canal in Khor Abdullah with the international border was divided between the maritime border point No. 156 and No. 157 heading south to point 162 and then to the beginning of the entrance to the navigation channel at the entrance to Khor Abdullah. It also led to the establishment of new ports.
    This agreement sparked great controversy in Iraq, as a group of Iraqi politicians saw that the then Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the Iraqi Parliament had ceded part of Khor Abdullah, which is the only shipping lane leading to most Iraqi ports, and that the division came by dividing, not based on Taluk line, i.e. the deepest passage in which maritime navigation is permitted.
    While the other team defended the agreement as a continuation of the demarcation of borders based on an international resolution, which in reality led to the establishment of Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port on the western shore of Khor Abdullah on the Kuwaiti island of Boubyan, which is supposed to be connected by railway with Iraq in the future, as it will be one of the... The largest port in the Gulf by its capacity.
    It is noteworthy that the Kuwaiti Mubarak Port project itself has also sparked controversy, due to the Kuwaiti government choosing its location on the western bank of Khor Abdullah on Bubiyan Island, the shipping lane leading to Iraqi ports, as voices appeared in Iraq calling for the transfer of this port to the southern shore of the island overlooking The Gulf, instead of the current location, to avoid any future ship congestion in this shipping lane after the completion of the four construction phases of the project.
    The Kuwaiti government denied its seizure of any Iraqi lands because of this agreement, and stressed that Kuwait is committed to its maritime borders with Iraq.
