Iranian officials stated that large volumes of Helmand river water released by Afghanistan gushed through the Kamal Khan Dam, and flowed into Iran on Saturday in the country’s Chah-Nimeh water wells in the Sistan region.

Hassan Kazemi Qomi, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s special representative for Afghanistan affairs, welcomed the release of Helmand River water on Saturday, August 6, and said that this outcome was the result of Tehran’s continuous diplomatic efforts.

Officials from the Taliban caretaker administration have not yet remarked on the release of waters to Iran.

Videos that have been made public from Iran’s Sistan and Baluchistan reveal that Afghanistan’s Nimruz has allowed a significant volume of water to enter Iranian territory.

Prior to this, Iran’s foreign and energy ministers declared that they would not cede Iran’s right to the Helmand River waters provided by the bilateral pact between Afghanistan and Iran.

As Tehran works to stabilize a long-term flow of water from the Helmand River, Iranian media stated that talks between Iran and Afghan officials are going to continue.

In 1973, Kabul and Tehran came to an agreement to share 850 million cubic meters of water annually, or 26 cubic meters per second, from the Helmand River.
