The UAE has criticised a decision by the government of Djibouti to cancel a DP World contract to run one of its ports.
Dubai-based DP World said Djibouti had “illegally seized control” of the Doraleh Container Terminal (DCT), which the firm had built and operated on a government concession awarded in 2004. Dubai state media claimed the move was part of the Djibouti government’s plan to force DP World to renegotiate the terms of the concession.
