Iran, Iraq exchange accusations over water flow

Iraq is planning to file a lawsuit against Iran for water cuts, according to Iraq’s Minister of Water Resources Mahdi Rashid Al Hamdani.

Iran is blaming climate change and asking Iraq to understand its position, saying Iraq should follow up on the matter with Turkey instead.

Farshid Shokrkhodai, head of the Commission for Sustainable Development, Environment and Water of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, said in a recent interview with the Iranian Labor News Agency, “Iran’s water tension with other countries, including Iraq, is increasing. Although we deny the problems of climate change or try not to get involved in climate change, we are victims of it in the region.”
