The parliamentary finance
committee called on the ministry of transportation to find alternative ways to
secure Iraqi trade in anticipation of a probable clash between the US and Iran.
The committee also urged the ministry to take precautionary measures to protect Iraqi ports and ensure the safety of the Iraqi navy.
"the Gulf ports face an uncertain fate," the committee said, adding that the countries in the Gulf put their alternative plans in anticipation of the consequences of imminent military operations that threaten the entire region.
