Iranian President Inspects Khuzestan Water Shortage

Via The Iran Project, an article on Iranian President Raisi visit to Hoor al-Azim Lagoon in order to inspect Khuzestan’s water shortage crisis:

President Raisi traveled to the southern province on Friday morning just a day after first cabinet meeting of his administration in capital Tehran.

President Raisi, who is visiting Khuzestan in an unannounced program, inspected the existing situation in Hurolazim wetland and the water shortage in the province.

Ayatollah Raisi then flew Jofeir region, 50 kilometers west of Ahvaz, to review the latest developments in the wetland and Karkheh River to get first hand information which could pave the way for making final decisions on how to tackle the problems of the region.

President Raisi pointed to the issue of providing the Iranian people with job opportunities as a pivotal job for the 13th Iranian administration.

In the inauguration ceremony of water supply projects in Jofeir region in Khuzestan, President Raisi noted that his administration will do its best to resolve the unemployment issue in Khuzestan province and throughout the country.

Two water supply projects in impoverished region of Jofeir in the outskirts of Hovayzeh county in Khuzestan province were launched at the presence of President Raisi.

Khuzestan province has been facing water challenges since the beginning of this Iranian calendar year (started March 21, 2021), which led to public protests in the downstream of the Karkheh River.

The new president has started working without any interrupt just following 18 cabinet members were approved by the Iranian Parliament on Wednesday.
