Baghdad decided to close down state-owned Iraqi Airways in the face of a decades-old financial dispute with neighboring Kuwait that prompted the seizure of one of its aircraft last month, the Transport Ministry said Wednesday.
"The cabinet decided yesterday (Tuesday) to wind up the Iraqi company," Ministry Spokesman Aqil Kawthar told AFP.
"The decision was taken due to the numerous acts of harassment that the company has faced from Kuwait that have prevented its planes from taking on fuel and food at various airports," Kawthar added.
