    [size=52]Water resources demand the formation of a senior delegation to talk to Iran and Turkey on the water crisis[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad / Firas Adnan[/size]
    [size=45]The Ministry of Water Resources called for the formation of a joint delegation to conduct new negotiations with Iran and Turkey regarding the water file. This comes at a time when the Ministry of Agriculture stressed that rain waves are capable of increasing cultivated areas, and talked about adopting new mechanisms in irrigation and rationing the use of groundwater.[/size]
    [size=45]The head of the Agriculture Committee in the House of Representatives, Thaer Makhaif, stated, "There is continuous follow-up by Parliament to the water crisis through communication with the relevant government agencies."[/size]
    [size=45]He added, "The committee called for a meeting with the former Minister of Water Resources, Mahdi Al-Hamdani, at the time, and this meeting was canceled due to the death of his father."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that "Parliament hosted a few days ago the ministers of water resources, Aoun Dhiab and Agriculture Abbas Al-Alaywi, in the government of Muhammad Shia'a Al-Sudani, and there was reassuring talk about the government's steps to address the water crisis."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out, "The deputies asked many questions to the two guest ministers because of their interest in the water and drought file, and they obtained adequate answers regarding strategic storage."[/size]
    [size=45]And he warned, "The government is determined to take effective steps to address the water crisis, which involves two parts, the first external, represented by dialogues with neighboring countries, and the second internal aspect related to water abuses by some governorates and the irrigation system."[/size]
    [size=45]And Makhaif concluded, "The Minister of Water Resources sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to form a delegation of a political, technical and administrative nature from the prime minister's office to conduct dialogues with both Iran and Turkey regarding the water file, and we look forward to these steps being good in addressing the current differences."[/size]
    [size=45]For his part, Hamid al-Nayef, a spokesman for the Ministry of Agriculture, said, "Iraq has gone through three seasons of drought, and any rainy wave will give us a positive impression."[/size]
    [size=45]And Al-Nayef continued, "Rain does not only contribute to an increase in the water level, after many animals have perished as a result of the lack of water."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that "the government has prepared an agricultural plan to provide 1.5 million dunams, according to what was agreed upon between the Ministries of Agriculture and Water Resources."[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Nayef talked about "preparing another agricultural plan, relying on groundwater, in order to compensate the surface irrigated areas, estimated at 4 million dunums."[/size]
    [size=45]He explained, "A third plan was also prepared, with an area of ​​6.9 million dunums, based on rain," noting that "the official authorities expect rain and torrential rains, which we will benefit from in increasing the cultivated areas."[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Nayef pointed out that, as for “increasing the agricultural plan, this is the responsibility of the Ministry of Water Resources, as it is the one that decides that based on the rise in water levels.”[/size]
    [size=45]He noted, "An important communication that brings us together with the Ministry of Water Resources, because our tasks are one complementary to the other, as we depend on water for agriculture."[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Nayef stressed that "climatic changes, global warming and water shortages are something that all countries suffer from," adding that "Iraq has water dues with neighboring countries that must be resolved."[/size]
    [size=45]He stressed, "The importance of Iraq obtaining its water dues from the Turkish side, given that the riparian countries must share the damage."[/size]
    [size=45]While Al-Nayef described "the water coming from the Turkish side as little," he called for "using it properly by replacing the surface irrigation system with closed ones and lining the rivers with concrete, a measure that saves 30% for the agricultural sector."[/size]
    [size=45]And he added, "The use of groundwater in agriculture needs sprinklers," adding that "Agriculture Minister Abbas Al-Olayawi took a set of decisions to the Council of Ministers and obtained positive indications that sprinklers are available through loans."[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Nayef believes that "providing sprinklers to farmers will help them invest in groundwater, because we do not want to waste this water, whose use will be reduced through sprinklers."[/size]
    [size=45]And he stated, "The ministry used modern technologies through irrigation with pivot and fixed sprinklers, the use of drought-resistant agricultural varieties, and an increase in the area unit for the yield of one acre."[/size]
    [size=45]And Al-Nayef concluded, "to develop a plan for rain, if it falls in large quantities, so that farmers are supported with seeds and fertilizers."[/size]
    [size=45]And sources in the Ministry of Water Resources had stated in previous statements to (Al-Mada) that «Iraq is going through the most difficult year of water drought since 1930».[/size]
    [size=45]The sources added, "The ministry strongly warned of the repercussions of this situation, on most sectors, the most important of which is the agricultural sector."[/size]
    [size=45]And she pointed out, "Our work was focused on not depleting the water reserves available to us in dams, and we give specific quantities according to a well-studied plan for the purpose of securing the priorities that we have, which are drinking water and human uses."[/size]
    [size=45]And the sources stressed, "The current threat is focused on the areas that are supposed to be cultivated during the next winter season."[/size]
    [size=45]He noted, "The quantities of water that enter the reservoirs are less than what comes out of them, and this means that we are facing a continuous decline in the strategic storage."[/size]
    [size=45]The sources spoke of "measures taken in developed countries such as Britain in order to rationalize, including not spraying gardens or using rubber tubes (sunds), although in those countries the drought is less severe than in Iraq."[/size]
