Lifting international sanctions on Iraqi tankers
Today, Sunday, the Ministry of Transport announced the raising of the Iraqi flag over the Iraqi tankers Al-Qurna and Al-Asma’i, after lifting the sanctions imposed on Iraq in the nineties of the last century on all marine tankers.
And Transport Minister Nasser Al-Shibli indicated, during a press conference held in Umm Qasr ports, that long discussions took place to achieve ways to comply with the International Ship and Port Security Code (ISPS code), during which the sanctions imposed on Iraqi shipping carriers during the 1990s were lifted after the approval of international maritime organizations. The Iraqi flag was hoisted high on the Iraqi conveyors.
Al-Shibli added that the two tankers, Al-Asma’i and Al-Qurna, owned by the General Company for Maritime Transport, were transferred from the Jordanian registration port to the registration port in Basra, and the Iraqi flag was raised on them after the completion of docking and maintenance, and the tanker’s validity for commercial work, which is documented by international certificates that are binding for commercial work and according to the requirements of the flag state (Iraq).
