TEHRAN (FNA)- Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani called for his government's fulfillment of its agreements with Iran on Hirmand River's water sharing.
"The signing of agreement with Iran on Hirman River's water benefits Iran and the Afghan government is entitled to implement this agreement," President Ghani said on Tuesday, addressing a ceremony in Kabul.
Iran and Afghanistan signed an agreement on sharing water of Hirmand River in 1972.
The Article 5 of Hirmand River agreement stipulates that Afghanistan agrees not to do anything to deprive Iran of its right to Hirmand River water.
Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan, which has kept its promises to help to the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country.
Iran has built several roads, power transmission lines, border stations and many other infrastructure projects to better link the two nations.
Iran has also contributed more than $50mln annually to Afghan anti-narcotics efforts during the last five years.
There are too many commonalities between the two friendly nations, including language, religion, culture and history.
