Row Continues Over Fate of Maaqal Port

The director of the Media Department of the Iraqi Ports Directorate said on Sunday that the ports department had studied the possibility of closing Maqel [Maaqal] port, but concluded that it is not feasible because of the large financial revenues generated by the port and the ease of transfer of goods through it.

Anmar al-Safi Anmar told AKnews that the easy arrival and departure of commercial vessels through Maqel port was very important, especially as it is near Basra International Fair, which attracts international companies. ”
