Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP Karim Elewi of the Parliamentary Agriculture Committee attributed the degradation of the agriculture sector in Iraq to the shortage of the water amount coming from Turkey in addition to the governmental dereliction for this important sector which comes after the oil sector in terms of Iraqi key economic revenues.

Elewi stated to Iraqi News (IraqiNews.com) “There are several factors that led to deteriorating the agricultural sector most notably the shortage of water amounts coming from Turkey where it is controlling the Iraqi water flow and using this topic for political aims,” noting that “The amounts of waters coming from Turkey are inadequate and do not meet the need of the irrigation.”
