Kuwait installs iron barrier on its borders with Iraq
Kuwait-Iraq, Politics, 1/14/2004
Kuwait had decided to install an iron separation fence along the border with Iraq at a length of 217 Km.
News reports in Kuwait said that Kuwaiti cabinet approved to install this fence, according to a request from the ministry of the interior which considered it a security need to protect the northern border, and prevent cars coming from Iraq from approaching the electricity bars.
The barrier which is built at a cost of 28 million dollars will be installed near the border. Marks separating the Iraqi side and the Kuwaiti side were adopted by the UN as official border markers.
The barrier will extend from the Kuwaiti city of Um Qaser until the joint border triangle with each of Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Asphalted roads will be also constructed to facilitate the moves of border security movement.
This comes at a time when reactions continue to reject the call of the Iraqi National Congress, led by Ahmad al-Chalabi, calling for renting the two islands of Warba and Bobian to be a sea outlets for Iraq on the Arab Gulf.
