Iran May Buy Water From Neighbors to Offset Shortages

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Iran may consider buying water from Tajikistan and other neighbors to address shortages, the Iranian Students News Agency said today, citing an official in parliament.

The Iranian parliament’s agriculture committee is working on a report on the project, said Ali Iranpour, one of its members, according to ISNA. Water purchases from Tajikistan may address shortages in the east of Iran, ISNA said.

Turkey, which buys oil and gas from Iran, shares a long border with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
