US: CARGO SHIPS STOPPING IN IRAQ MAY BE DENIED ENTRY

Sandler Travis Rosenberg on 15th October reported that from 26th October the US Coast Guard will impose certain conditions of entry on all vessels that visited any port in Iraq (with 3 exceptions) in their last 5 port calls. Any vessel that does not meet these conditions may be denied entry into the US – because it has determined that the affected ports in Iraq are not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures  and that Iraq’s designated authority’s oversight, access control, security monitoring, security training programs, and security plans, drills, and exercises are all deficient.
