KRG Prime Minister, Nichervan Barzani, attended today the inauguration ceremony of Zakho water project. The prime minister was accompanied by Sarbaz Hawrami, the head of the prime minister's bureau, and Nazaleen waso, the minister of municipality, and a number of officials.
It is worth mentioning that the cost of this project is 25 million dollars and is funded by KRG. This project produces 3150 cubic meters of water per hour. According to specialists, this project will solve water problems for the next 25 years. It was done by Gürbağ Company and took one year for completion. In a speech delivered by the prime minister, he indicated that this project reflects our gratitude to our martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the people in Kurdish revolutions. He also mentioned that some other projects will be carried out such as the expansion of water supplies in the city. The prime minister said that few projects were done in this area because the Baath regime opposed important and strategic projects. Finally, he extended his thanks to the people who helped in achieving this project especially Gürbağ Company and the governor who spared no effort for the implementation of this project.
