Iran, Afghanistan Talk Joint Projects In Shared Water Resources

Iranian Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian and Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Hanif Atmar discussed mutual water resources in Tehran on Monday.

Ardakanian and Atmar spoke about joint projects in the Harirud river which originates in Afghanistan and flows north into the Afghan-Iran frontiers and then eventually into Turkmenistan.

Atmar noted that Afghanistan and Iran have made “good progress” on bilateral cooperation regarding common border rivers since the 1972 Hirmand agreement.

Both sides decided to conduct technical and specialized studies in this field and cooperate with each other based on the rights of both nations.
