Baghdad / Obelisk Al-Hadath: The Parliamentary Agriculture, Water and Marshes Committee revealed the conditions imposed by Ankara on Baghdad to reopen the water again.
Committee member Rafik al-Salhi said that Turkey imposed several conditions on Iraq, in exchange for opening water through its dams and reaching Iraqi rivers, noting that among these conditions: Expelling the PKK from northern Iraq as it represents an opposition party to the Turkish government.
He added, "As for the other demands, they were represented in concluding more economic and political agreements, which greatly serve the interests of Ankara, indicating that Turkey is trying to exploit Iraq regarding the water crisis to achieve its desired interests."
Regarding the proposals of the agricultural sector in the 2023 budget, Salhi said that one of the most important proposals that must be included in the current year’s budget for the agricultural sector is to repeat and re-work the agricultural initiative and support the farmer with appropriate agricultural supplies such as seeds and fertilizers and distribute them through agricultural associations.
He pointed to the need to cancel or extinguish advances and agricultural loans of 50 million or less, because the farmer is unable to pay what he owes to agricultural banks, as a result of his repeated losses.
