Usama Al-Shaheen asked the Interior Ministry to hold this person responsible. Writer Mohammad Al-Mulaifi said, “we will wait outside the State Security Building to submit a complaint demanding this person’s arrest.”
In other news, Iraqi member of parliament Adnan Al-Shahmani described MP Waleed Al-Tabatabae’s statement about Iranian forces controlling Baghdad Airport before the Arab Summit’s commencement as being ‘ridiculous.’ He commented that the restitution of Iraq – Kuwait relations did not go down well with the Kuwaiti MP. “Iraq is a sovereign country and is independent. It is not logical to hand over parts of it to a certain country. Definitely there is no Iranian involvement here,” Al-Shahmani asserted.
