LONDON, Jan 8 (IranMania) - Zabol interim prayers leader, Hojatoleslam Gholam-Reza Dehqan called upon Afghan officials to respect Iran`s right over Hirmand river, according to IRNA.

Addressing this week`s Friday sermon, he thanked Almighty God for the recent rainfalls in Sistan-Baluchestan province which helped rehabilitation of Hirmand river and hoped that the Afghan officials would be fair about Iran`s right over the river especially under the current circumstances that the province is suffering from draught.

The clergy said that he looked forward to the resumption of the water flow towards Iran which will help give a boost to various sectors in the area including agriculture, fishery and cattle breeding.

"During the draught in recent years, farming activities continued at a limited scale as the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad proceeded to dig a number of wells. But given the gravity of draught, such measures have been insufficient," he said. The city of Zabol is located 205 kms to the north of the provincial capital of Zahedan."
