    Baghdad today - follow-up
    Kuwaiti Minister of Public Works, Noura Al-Mashaan, visited the construction site of the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port project on Boubyan Island, in the latest official indication that the Gulf state is committed to the project, which Iraq rejects.
    The Ministry of Public Works stated in a statement, today, Tuesday (May 28, 2024), that Al-Mashaan visited the Mubarak Port site, accompanied by a technical delegation of experts and engineers specialized in mega projects from China and Kuwait, in addition to the Chinese ambassador to Kuwait.
    The visit comes, according to the statement, in implementation of the memorandum of understanding related to the establishment of the Mubarak Port project, signed between Kuwait and China during the visit of the Emir of the country, Meshaal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, to Beijing last September.
    Kuwait did not officially announce the resumption of construction work in Mubarak Port, located on Bubiyan Island near Iraq, a project that Baghdad has always rejected.
    But Al-Qabas newspaper says that the Mubarak Port project “is at the forefront of the Kuwaiti scene developmentally and economically with the start of the actual resumption of its implementation, and practical and realistic steps are being taken towards this direction, so that it will be among the development projects that Kuwait is counting on during the next stage.”
    Construction work on the huge Mubarak Port project has been progressing slowly for years, without being completed, due to political tensions with Iraq.
    The latest Kuwaiti moves came after the Iraqi Supreme Court invalidated the Khor Abdullah Agreement, which regulates navigation between the two countries, in addition to Baghdad signing a four-way agreement for the “Development Road” project with Turkey, the Emirates, and Qatar, on the sidelines of the recent visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Baghdad.
    What is Mubarak Port?
    In April 2011, Kuwait laid the foundation stone for the construction of the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port, whose cost is estimated at about $1.1 billion, on Boubyan Island. Its construction will be completed in 2016, noting that the announcement of this huge project was first issued in 2007.
    This engagement sparked anger on the part of neighboring Iraq, which considers that the port construction site on Bubiyan Island will hinder its access to the waters of the Gulf, which are its only outlet to the sea.
    Kuwait rejects these accusations
    In July of the same year, Baghdad officially asked Kuwait to stop work in Mubarak Port after a political controversy between the two countries, but the Gulf state officially rejected Iraq’s request.
    In 2013, the two countries concluded an agreement to regulate maritime traffic in Khor Abdullah, which connects Iraq to the waters of the Gulf.
    The agreement stipulates that the waters of Khor Abdullah will be divided equally between the two countries, based on UN Security Council Resolution 833 issued in 1993, which redrawn the borders in the wake of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.
    Iraqis object to this agreement because they believe that it gives Kuwait the right to territorial waters deep inside Iraq, which hinders the movement of maritime trade in front of the country’s limited ports and aborts the large Al-Faw port project, which has reached advanced stages of completion.
    But last September, the Iraqi Supreme Court decided that the Khor Abdullah Agreement, which regulates maritime navigation in the waterway separating Kuwait and Baghdad, was unconstitutional.
    The court justified its decision "in violation of the provisions of Article (61/Fourth) of the Constitution of the Republic of Iraq, which stipulates that the process of ratifying international treaties and agreements is regulated by a law enacted by a two-thirds majority of the members of the House of Representatives."
