Earlier this month, Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi warned the Taliban not to violate Iran’s territorial waters on the Helmand River. Raisi’s remarks were among the sharpest on Iran’s longstanding concerns about water. Meanwhile, Afghanistan’s Acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaki met with an Iranian envoy in Afghanistan to discuss Helmand River water rights.

The Helmand River is more than 1000 km long and flows across the border. Now this river is being dammed from the Afghanistan side to generate electricity and irrigate agricultural land. According to the United Nations, drought has been a serious crisis in Iran for the past 30 years, but the problem has become more serious in the past decade. The Iran Meteorological Organization says an estimated 97 percent of the country is currently experiencing some level of drought.
