he added, "The Turkish side cut off Iraq's water share in a very large way, which led to the unnatural damage to our lands that it has not witnessed, and this matter requires intervention by the executive authority in the country to pressure the Turkish side to increase Iraq's water share."
Al-Baiji said, "The government should not rely on the easiest solutions, which is to go to the water reservoirs in the lakes and dams in order to fill the large shortage of water as a result of reducing it from Turkey, because this matter will expose the country to a disaster if Turkey continues its policy towards our country by reducing our water share, which He calls for direct intervention by the government to address this crisis."
