[size=52]An international report talks about the negative role of the neighborhood towards Iraq regarding water[/size]

[size=45]About Middle East News[/size]
[size=45]An international news report spoke about the negative role of neighboring countries in the water file towards Iraq, noting that Turkey believes that the Euphrates River is its property, and what it gives to others is just a goodwill gesture and does not commit itself to any agreement. Thousands of farmers abandoned their villages and lands and moved to major cities.[/size]
[size=45]A report published by Middle East News, translated by Al-Mada, stated that "the Iraqi Minister of Water Resources, Mahdi Rashid Al-Hamdani, was full of optimism when he returned from a visit he made to Turkey last month." The report added, "The good news that al-Hamdani had transmitted says: We have promised the Turks to increase our share of the water that will flow into the Euphrates River in Iraq."[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out, "Iraq has long been suffering from a scarcity of water levels, estimated at 11 billion cubic meters annually." The report expected, "the matter will worsen in line with the increasing population of the country," noting that "farmers are talking about the desertification of vast agricultural lands due to severe drought and climate change." He pointed out, "The summer temperatures reached more than 50 degrees Celsius, the fruits withered and the seeds did not germinate, and even drinking water became scarce." The report spoke of "research conducted by the Iraqi government that showed that the country is suffering from a state of desertification by 40%, and that the salinity that affected most of the lands has risen to a level that is not suitable for agriculture." He explained, "Iraq receives most of its water resources through the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, which originate in Turkey, and the rest of the rivers come from Iran." And the report indicated, "The country had signed a number of agreements with Turkey on water supplies, but they were not fully implemented."[/size]
[size=45]The report stated, "The irrigation system and the method of water consumption in homes have been neglected in Iraq for decades," stressing that "some people steal water from public liquefaction pipes or dig wells in their gardens and home yards." And the report continued, that “the water crisis increased and exacerbated with the control of ISIS over large areas of Iraq,” stressing that “the crisis continued even after the organization was defeated and expelled from the country, as most of the country’s budget was transferred to other projects, and these contracts were tainted by suspicions of corruption.” “.[/size]
[size=45]And he added, "Turkey is continuing to develop its large Anatolia project, which includes the construction of 22 dams and 19 hydroelectric power stations, which in turn will reduce the water levels heading to the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in both Iraq and Syria." The report noted that "the water scarcity crisis had cast a shadow over a demographic change in population centers in some areas of the country."[/size]
[size=45]He revealed, "Thousands of Iraqi farmers have abandoned their villages and lands and moved to the outskirts of major cities in Baghdad, Mosul and Basra."[/size]
[size=45]While the report stated, “Discussions and discussions are continuing with Turkey, which supplies Iraq with approximately 25 billion cubic meters of water annually through the Euphrates River,” and stated that “the water supplies coming from Iran are another completely different story.”[/size]
[size=45]The report finds that “theoretically, the rivers and tributaries whose sources are in Iran, can supply Iraq with up to 11 billion cubic meters per year,” adding that “a long series of Iranian dams worked to change the course of the rivers flow, and this means that Iraq no longer receives water from Iran.[/size]
[size=45]And he quotes other reports that "Iran itself is suffering from a severe drought that hits the country, and rainfall rates in it this year amounted to half of what it used to do annually."[/size]
[size=45]The report stressed that "more than 8000 Iranian villages and towns now receive water through tankers," explaining that "this bad situation led to people protesting and violent clashes with the authorities, especially in Khuzestan province in the southwest of the country." He continues, that "Iraq accuses it of not complying with international law regarding water quotas for riparian countries, and even threatened to sue them at the International Court."[/size]
[size=45]The report went on to state that "Iraq has not yet formed its new government, and its dependence on its eastern neighbor may prevent it from dragging Iran to justice."[/size]
[size=45]He cautioned, "Tehran realizes that Iraqis, especially from the southern provinces, harbor hostile feelings towards it, resulting from the scarcity of water." The report indicated that "Iraq and Syria are now seeking to reach an agreement with Turkey to guarantee a fair share of water."[/size]
[size=45]And it goes back to “the year 1992, when understandings were reached between Iraq and Syria, and between the two countries with Turkey. According to these understandings, Turkey would supply them with 500 cubic meters per second, 42 percent of it to Syria and 58 percent of it to Iraq.”[/size]
[size=45]However, the report denies “signing any official agreement due to differences over the ownership of the Euphrates River.” He pointed out, "Ankara's insistence that the Euphrates is a Turkish river that is not governed by international law, and that its supply of water to Syria and Iraq is a goodwill gesture on its part."[/size]
[size=45]And the report went on, "Turkey says that it has allowed more water to flow over the years than what was agreed upon, and it may agree to temporarily increase the flow of water levels without committing itself in the future."[/size]
