The water in the Helmand Sea has decreased said Qomi, emphasizing that Iran’s water rights should be properly provided considering the amount of rainfall.
Iran’s minister of energy Ali Akbar Mehrabian, has said that following the inspection of the Deh Rawood hydrometric station in Helmand province, it was found that the drought situation in Afghanistan is ‘serious’.
“Recently, our colleagues visited Deh Rawood hydrometric station in Helmand. This visit showed that the drought in Afghanistan is also serious,” Ali Akbar Mehrabian said as quoted by ISNA news agency.
Tensions between Iran and the Islamic Emirate escalated in recent months after Tehran accused Kabul of restricting the flow of water.
Last week, the Afghanistan Foreign Ministry announced that an Iranian delegation visited the Deh Rawood water system and found that the water scarcity in Afghanistan is shocking.
The Islamic Emirate has repeatedly said that it is committed to the 1351 treaty between Afghanistan and Iran.
