Taliban must be held accountable if they ignore Iran's water rights: Diplomat

Iran’s special envoy to Afghanistan and caretaker head of the country's embassy in Kabul Hassan Kazemi Qomi has reiterated that the Taliban must be held accountable for its refusal to deliver Iran’s water rights if it is proven that there is enough water in dams built on Helmand River in Afghanistan.

Kazemi Qomi told Iranian state TV late on Friday that nearly two billion cubic meters of water flew to Godzareh Lake last year contrary to what Taliban officials have said about the shortage of water in Helmand River. 

The diplomat said that the Taliban officials know if they want to establish a stable government in the country, they must have constructive relations with neighbors, including with Iran. 

He also reminded the ruling group in Kabul that Iran has provided assistance to the people of Afghanistan more than any other country over the past decades.
