Water crisis in Central Asia: Afghanistan will take the Amu Darya's share

Secretary of the Security Council of the Kyrgyz Republic Marat Imankulov expressed concern over the growing problem of water scarcity, reports World of NAN with reference to

Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are countries that form water sources. And for several years in a row, they have been experiencing difficulties. Last year, large areas went without irrigation and people did not get their crops.

"Now Afghanistan is building canals on Kush-Tepa, up to 30% of water will be taken away. And the Afghans are not going to commit to the watershed. But we have the right to our share of the Amu Darya River. And what will happen in the lower reaches? Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan - how will they be supplied with water?" asks Marat Imankulov.

At the same time, tension is growing on Kazakhstan's part. Allegedly, Kyrgyzstan purposely does not let water into the neighboring country.

"Everything that Kazakhstan needed, everything was released. Completely, 100 percent of the water was released. It's just that not only they lacked this water, but we lacked it too. And the Kazakh media reports create tension and misunderstanding among the Kazakh people. Therefore, this very issue becomes very urgent, which should be solved in the near future," said Marat Imankulov.
