The Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani, confirmed today, Tuesday, September 27, 2022, that the government will continue to implement service projects, noting at the same time that the ongoing battles between Turkish forces and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) impede the reconstruction of the border areas.
Masrour Barzani's speech came during his participation in the ceremony of laying the foundation stone for several service projects in the independent administration of Zakho.
Masrour Barzani said that "during the past year, many projects were implemented in the sectors of education, tourism, health and road construction," adding that "Zakho was not previously serviced in the required manner, so its residents must be compensated."
The Prime Minister added, "We have other future projects, such as the 60 Metric Street in Zakho, the Bativa District Hospital and the Industrial District in Zakho," noting that "these projects will provide job opportunities for the people of Zakho and will be a means to develop the industrial sector throughout Kurdistan."
He stressed that "Zakho is an important city and its people gave a large number of martyrs in the service of Kurdistan and its gains," stressing that this region has commercial importance, linking Kurdistan through Turkey with Europe, and a large proportion of Kurdistan's trade takes place through it.
He pointed out that "turning the streets and roads of Zakho into a highway aims to facilitate trade between Zakho and the Kurdish cities and link them abroad," stressing that "it will be a great step to strengthen the economic infrastructure in Kurdistan."
And he added, "A year ago, it was said that 60 percent of the roads and streets inside Zakho are unpaved," stressing that "during this year, 30 percent of them have been completed and we will work to complete the rest."
"The Zakho area is a very beautiful and comfortable city," he added, but "unfortunately, because of the ongoing battles in the border areas in Zakho and its villages, we cannot rebuild and develop these areas."
"We hope that the sovereignty of our country will be respected and that the battles in those areas will be ended so that their people can return to them and the government will be able to develop these areas and increase their economic development," he added.
At the conclusion of his speech, Masrour Barzani revealed the government’s intention to build a dam for the Zakho region as one of the projects on the lists of the ninth cabinet in building dams within all regions of the region, and to provide support to farmers and to contribute to improving the climate and solving water problems that constitute a serious challenge.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
