After Djibouti cancelled DP World’s contract to run the Doraleh Container Terminal, calling it an “arbitrary” flouting of a signed agreement, UAE has stepped forward in defense of DP World.
Anwar Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, tweeted recently, “Djibouti government’s seizure of the Doraleh port is regrettable. Agreements, commitments and reassurances didn’t hold up to arbitrary measures against DP World.”
However the Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority claimed in a statement that the government of Djibouti took action in light of “the recent poor performance’’ of the port and “to rectify irregularities in the agreement covering its operation.”
The Djibouti government further said that contract signed more than a decade ago granting DP World the concession violated the Horn of Africa nation’s sovereignty. It previously claimed DP World paid bribes when the concession was awarded in 2006, allegations denied by the company and rejected by the UK High Court in 2016.
