Armenia-Iran water deal questioned
Armenian ecologists are expressing concern about the possibility of selling water from Lake Sevan to help restore Iran's drying Lake Urmia. Lake Sevan, which is the only main source of fresh water in Armenia and the largest one in the Caucasus region, has already suffered serious consequences due to increased human activity.
Now that the Sevan water levels have stabilized, specialists worry exporting water might cause irreversible damages on the ecosystem.
