Afghanistan Loses $75bn from its Waters Each Year

Afghanistan Loses $75bn from its  Waters Each Year

KABUL - Afghanistan has been unable to control its waters and presently more than 70% of its waters flow into neighbors without any benefit, senators say.
A number of senators accuse some circles within the government framework over disrupting water controlling program.
"The government should bring water sources under its control so that our waters no longer flow into neighboring countries freely and with no charge," Hedayatullah Rahayee, an Afghan senator, said.

Another Afghan senator Frahgul Ahmad Azimi said: "I want to repeat it again that there are circles within government who are trying to please our neighbors including Iran and Pakistan. And they don't care for their own people.

Each year nearly 57 billion cubic meters of water flow into rivers in Afghanistan and thirty percent of the whole waters are used inside Afghanistan, officials in water and energy ministry said.
It has been predicted that water shortages in the world would be the next factor of war among countries sharing borders. (Tolo News)
