A member of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture, Water and Marshlands, Ali Maneh Al-Badiri, said, Thursday, that the water crisis file is a dangerous indication of a future water war, stressing that Turkey is using the water file to deduct part of Iraqi lands .
Al-Badiri said, "The Turkish government has begun to use the water file as a pressure weapon to obtain personal gain ."
He added that "part of these gains deducted part of Iraqi lands," noting that "previous and current governments bear full responsibility for not giving the water file priority in negotiating with the Turks ."
Al-Badiri explained that "the Iraqi government considers the water file a secondary issue," indicating that "the water crisis threatens drought, and the government must take new mechanisms to solve the water crisis with Turkey ."
Earlier, the Ministry of Water Resources had renewed its assertion that there was no shortage of water, while indicating that the levels of the two rivers would be at their highest levels after two months.
