A member of the Iran parliament, Fida Hussain Maliki, said that if Tehran’s right to Helmand River water is not honored, a "counter action" should be taken.
In an interview with an Iranian media organization, Maliki said the Taliban should know that Iran has provided a lot of leverage to Afghanistan.
The political analysts said that the two countries should sit together to find a solution for the water rights issue.
“It has a negative impact. It is the responsibility of the governments to sit together with the mediation of a delegation to find a solution,” said Sayed Akbar Sial, a political analyst.
But the Islamic Emirate said that it doesn’t want a dispute with any country and that it is committed to the water treaty of 1973 signed between Afghanistan and Iran.
“The nations that are located across the border, either this side or other side, they are our brothers. They are Muslims and we hope this issue can be solved through other paths. May the rainfalls happen and the problems of the two sides be solved,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Earlier, Iran said that the water rights are at the top of its diplomatic priorities.
