Blackwater returns to Iraq with a new name and official license

The US company Paz Ved published documents to license a foreign company in Iraq under the name Frontier Service Group, which it said belonged to the owner of Blackwater, which was operating in Iraq during the US invasion.

The new company, based in the United Arab Emirates, belongs to Eric Prince, which he founded in Hong Kong to work in the field of “logistics” in 2014.

The company is supposed to operate in the southern oil city of Basra to secure oil transfers.

Blackwater was expelled from Iraq after abuses and field killings committed in the country during the US invasion and got contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

For the first time, Prince acknowledged that he attended a meeting at US President Donald Trump’s office, in which American and Israeli figures participated and a delegate from both Saudi Arabia and the UAE in 2016. 25. Source
