    [size=45]Baghdad / Hussein Hatem[/size]
    [size=45]Despite the threat to cut economic relations with the Turkish and Iranian sides if the water issue in Iraq is not addressed, the scarcity still exists without any solutions.[/size]
    [size=45]The Ministry of Water Resources is still waiting for the Turkish delegation, which is supposed to attend after the month of Ramadan, but the ministry attributes the delay in the delegation's visit to the unknown. On the other hand, the Water Resources confirmed that the Iranian side changed the course of 4 rivers.[/size]
    [size=45]Aoun Diab, a consultant to the Ministry of Water Resources, said that "there are no new developments regarding the negotiations on the water file with the Turkish and Iranian sides."[/size]
    [size=45]Diab added: "The Turkish side was supposed to come to Baghdad, but we do not know the reasons that disrupted his visit," expecting that it was "due to the government formation crisis and the political blockage in Iraq."[/size]
    [size=45]As for the Iranian side, he stated, “Iran has changed the course of 4 rivers into its territory, which previously flowed into Iraq and supplied its rivers with good water rations,” noting that the four rivers are: “Zamkan, Abbassian, Sirwan and Alwand.”[/size]
    [size=45]Diab continued, "As for the internal level, the ministry went to use the worst options, which is to use the available water storage in a reasonable manner and away from waste."[/size]
    [size=45]In turn, spokesman for the Ministry of Water Resources, Ali Radi, said, "The water releases currently in the Tigris River are sufficient releases to meet all requirements of securing raw water for liquefaction and agriculture stations and other requirements."[/size]
    [size=45]Iraq suffers from severe water scarcity, caused by high temperatures, drought, climate change and the continuous withdrawal of water by neighboring countries from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.[/size]
    [size=45]For his part, the water expert, Adel Al-Mukhtar, believes that "the water situation in Iraq has reached a dangerous level that may lead to a further reduction in the areas of irrigated agricultural land compared to last season."[/size]
    [size=45]He stressed the need for "there should be a strong position on the neighboring countries, because Iraq and these countries are not enemies."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that "ignoring Iraq's rights and ignoring its appeal prompted the Deputy Speaker of Parliament to scold the Turkish and Iranian sides, especially since the situation requires a strong reaction."[/size]
    [size=45]The First Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Hakim Al-Zamili had previously threatened to legislate a law criminalizing economic dealings with Turkey and Iran if they did not respond to Iraq's demands regarding its water quotas.[/size]
    [size=45]Before his resignation from Parliament, Al-Zamili likened what Iran and Turkey were doing towards Iraq to Israel's policy, saying, "Israel is killing us with fire, and the Iranians and Turks target us by killing us by cutting off our water."[/size]
