On Monday, Jassim Al-Moussawi, a member of Parliament, held the Ministry of Foreign Affairs accountable for asserting Iraq’s rights in the oil and gas fields situated in the area. He emphasized that Iraq has numerous rights in the Gulf region and presented supporting evidence.
During an interview with the information agency, Al-Moussawi stated that members of Parliament emphasized the importance of Iraq’s participation in meetings concerning the disputed gas fields within the geographical area. Additionally, there are parliamentary demands to record Iraq’s rights in these sessions, which are currently taking place in the parliament dome.
He stated that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for advocating for Iraq’s rights in the Arab region. He highlighted that this region has faced numerous wars over the years, resulting in the loss of several significant territories. However, factual evidence confirms that these lands remain a part of Iraq.
According to the Member of Parliament, Iraq is entitled to oil, gas, water and navigation fields, as it is a member of the regional countries group. The MP added that Mesopotamia plays a significant role in the Arab Gulf region’s economy.
A political analyst named Haider al-Moussawi has accused the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of being negligent in handling the issue of Kuwaiti violations in the shared oil fields with Iraq. He emphasized that resolving this issue requires foreign intervention to put an end to the ongoing abuses.
It has been reported that Kuwait has been encroaching on Iraq’s oil fields along the joint border. This is in defiance of Iraq’s ownership of 224 miles of oil fields. Despite this, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has remained silent on the matter, while Britain has allegedly devised a plan to seize these fields.
