KUWAIT CITY, Oct 4: A total of 32 MPs issued a statement to call upon the parliaments of all sisterly and friendly countries to support the Kuwaiti right in the agreement signed by Kuwait and Iraq that regulates navigation on Khor Abdullah Waterway in 2012. The MPs explained that the agreement is aimed at preserving good neighborly relations, enhancing the sovereignty of the states in terms of their territorial boundaries, and ensuring regional peace. Supporting the agreement is part of preserving international security, particularly in the Gulf. The aggressive attitude of the Iraqi party represented by the ruling issued by Iraq’s Federal Court to nullify the agreement makes it possible for all of the international treaties to be nullified including the regulations they contain, and shows no consideration to international laws, which is the most adequate way to address disputes.

The agreement was signed in 2012, approved by the Iraqi Parliament and previously by the Iraqi Federal Court, and referred to the United Nations, emphasizing the UN resolution No. 833/1993. The MPs concluded by affirming that supporting the agreement by an international community is part of respecting and supporting the independence and sovereignty of countries more than just supporting the State of Kuwait.

In another development, MP Fares Al- Otaibi submitted parliamentary questions to the Minister of State for Municipal Affairs and the State Minister of Communications Affairs Fahad Al-Shoula, asking for the organizational structure of the Communications and Information Technology Regulatory Authority (CITRA). He asked if a new organizational structure was recently approved. If yes, he wanted copies of the former and current organizational structures, the reasons behind the amendments, and a copy of the decision to form the committee assigned to make the amendments, along with the names, positions and CVs of the members of that committee. Also, MP Fares Al-Otaibi submitted parliamentary questions to the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Oil, and State Minister for Economic and Investment Affairs Saad Al-Barrak.
