Iraqi President: Turkey and Iran's water cuts pose a threat to Iraq's water security
Iraqi President Latif Rashid said that Turkey’s and Iran's water cuts pose a threat to his country’s water security, causing the water level to drop.
Speaking at the 31st Arab League Summit in Algeria on Wednesday, Iraqi President Latif Rashid said that the dams built by Iran and Turkey on the rivers in Iraq threaten the country's water security and cause water levels to drop.
“I hope that the water resources in Iraq will improve. Dialogue should be established with Turkey and Iran for a solution to the water problem,” the Iraqi President said.
After being elected president, Rashid made his first foreign visit to Algeria to attend the Arab League Summit.
