He noted that the development of agriculture in the liberated territories is one of the main spheres. “In this context, the provision with irrigation water is a priority. In this regard, additional measures will be taken."
Mustafayev said the construction of new canals is also being considered.
“For example, the Giz Galasi reservoir was built on the Araz River. In accordance with the agreement signed with the Islamic Republic of Iran in 2016, equal sharing of the resources of the Khudaferin and Giz Galasi reservoirs is envisaged.”
“Azerbaijan may build a new water canal from Giz Galasi reservoir and take 50 cubic meters of water from the reservoir per second. We will begin the design work to ensure irrigation by using these opportunities,” the deputy premier added.
