The Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources: Turkey is not a guardian of us

The Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources responded to the statements of the Turkish ambassador in Baghdad about the drought, stressing that Turkey is not a guardian of Iraq


The ministry said in a brief statement: "Turkey is not a guardian of Iraq, and it must release Iraq's fair and equitable share according to international conventions without interfering with Iraq's water policy."


The Iraqi ambassador had said earlier today: "There will be more droughts in the coming years, and in order to rationalize water consumption, irrigation systems must be modernized and the primitive irrigation that causes waste of water must be abandoned. For this purpose, investments must be made in infrastructure and Turkish companies are ready for that." .
