Despite the Experts Recommendations, Fars Water Company Claims New Sivand Excavations Unnecessary

LONDON, (CAIS) -- The managing director of Fars province Water Company falsely claimed that based on the outcome of a meeting held in Tehran in January [20], excavations conducted so far in Sivand Dam are sufficient and there is no need for fresh undertakings.

 

This conflicting statement was indeed issued in contrary to the summit statement on 21st January, which was declared inconclusive.


According Khalil Rezaeian at a gathering of farmers from Arsanjan village in Fars province, who urged the commissioning of Sivand Dam, “I will convey your request to the relevant ministry.“

 

He further said that the dam aims to supply water demands of the region because the area faces acute water shortage.


In a theatrical show in front of the regime's provincial Water Company, around 500 participants gathered by the regime, demanded for the inundation of the dam. This is while the Iranian, international community, experts and institutions have called for delaying the commissioning of the dam on grounds that if it becomes operational, Iran’s most revered monuments at the Pasargadae, will be threatened.
