Adviser to the Ministry of Water Resources, Aoun Dhiab Abdullah, described Iran's actions as violating international norms and conventions, the most important of which is the agreement of the year one thousand nine hundred and seventy-five.
Abdullah said that Tehran did not abide by international conventions, agreements and charters, and cut off the water completely from Iraq and did not share the damage with it, which directly affected the vital important areas such as Diyala, Badra, Jassan, and Hawizeh Marsh, in addition to the Shatt al-Arab, as well as its exploitation of the waters above the basin and the lack of consideration for the interest downstream regions.
The ministry’s advisor added that these measures led to a decrease in water reserves in the dams, foremost of which is the Hamrin Dam on the Diyala River, whose waters are on the verge of drying out, pointing out that the continued interruption of water imports from the country may lead to forced migration from the south, especially within the marsh areas threatened by drought.
