Yemen sells Iraqi ships to India
Yemen-Iraq, Local, 7/11/2002
Yemeni maritime sources in Aden said that the Yemeni authorities started to get rid off 8 Iraqi ships existing at the port of Aden which overlooks the Red Sea since the invasion of Kuwait, 12 years ago.
The sources added that three oil tankers and five shipping ships built in the 1970 s will be sent to India to be sold as a scrap.
One source said that "one of the tankers left two days and will be followed by others that had been anchored in the port without maintenance since 1990." The sources said that the ships were sold to a Jordanian company in coordination with the UN which imposes a trade sanction on Iraq since its invasion of Kuwait. The sources refused to disclose the name of the company nor the value of the deal.
