Iran prevents Iraq's development in water sector: expert

Shatt al-Arab
Iran is working on preventing Iraq's development process in water sector, said Mohammed Mohsen Abul Nur, chairman of the Arab Forum for Analyzing Iranian Policies (AFAIP).

In a televised interview, Abdul Nur said that Iran knows very well that the next war in the region would be a war on water, so it extremely accelerated the construction of dams.

He added that Iran has worked in the past few years to dry the 200-km-long Shatt al-Arab river located between Iran and Iraq, adding that the people of Basra are complaining of the high-level of salt in the drinking water.
