On Tuesday, Tehran said Turkiye’s construction of dams on shared waterways was “unacceptable”, calling on its neighbour to stop such activity.

Iran has in recent years faced frequent droughts, caused in part by climate change as well as dam construction in neighbouring countries.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry yesterday rejected Iranian accusations that its dam-building activities have caused droughts in the region.
