Agreement reached with Baghdad, Ankara to build 3 water dams in KRG


An agreement has been reached between Erbil, Baghdad and Ankara on building three water dams in the Kurdistan Region, a Kurdish lawmaker in the Iraqi parliament has said.

In remarks on Tuesday, Mohammed Amin, a member of the agricultural committee, said the Kurdistan region will benefit from the three water dams, which are planned to be established in Meegasor town in Erbil.

The water projects, according to Amin, could encourage some people in Erbil to return to the surrounding villages after the area will once again be rich in water.

There will be a meeting on Wednesday with the Turkish officials to discuss the matter and make decisions on the issue, he added.
