Minister says Israel seeking to provoke water conflict in Iran

Tehran, June 13, IRNA - Iranian energy minister said on Wednesday that Israeli prime minister is seeking to provoke water conflict in the country by launching a Persian website to “assist people and farmers of Iran to recycle water”.

Provoking water conflict in Iran is the goal of these remarks, but the people of Iran will not be deceived seduced by this occupying regime's officials, Reza Ardakanian noted.

He said that Iran is a member of the international community and it has access to all tools and technologies to access sufficient water resources.

Calling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “deceitful showman”, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi had said earlier that, “I don’t know to what extent one should respond to the remarks of a deceitful showman.'

Qasemi said that “this is not the first time that Netanyahu makes such irrelevant comments”, adding, “The Israeli prime minister had better first stop the massacre of Palestinians and the crimes that he is committing on a daily basis.”
