The Euphrates River Basin; Half of the Country’s Area between the (Confinement) of the River and Periodic Drought.

For the second consecutive year, Turkey reduces the water level of Euphrates river, in this time of the year, resulting in the amounts of water flow across the river reduced by 40% of what was agreed upon in the last understanding between Turkey and Syria. Confining water and reducing its level have become frequent, but their impact and effect vary from one year to another according to the level of rainfall abundance. The country is left without comprehensive water management for decades which is disproportionate with the rapid water deterioration of Syria.

Sochi Summit ... a Large Step Forward

Today's summit in Sochi [17th September, 2018] between the Russian and Turkish presidents marked an important and significant step forward towards ending terrorism in Syria as well as towards consolidating the political solution to the crisis.
