Kuwait dismisses Iraq concerns over new port

Dubai: Kuwait is ploughing ahead with a controversial port project that neighbour Iraq has demanded be cancelled.

Iraq has called for the $1.1bn construction of the Mubarak Al-Kabir port on Kuwait's Boubyan island to be suspended, claiming the development would affect Iraq’s shipping routes.

The port is scheduled to be finished in 2016.  [10/12/13]
