Should Turkey Share its Water?
By: Stephen Payne
This is a map of Turkey, as you can see Turkey as a lot of water, but Turkey is stopping the Tigris and Euphrates River from flowing into Syria and Iraq causing less water for these countries. Does Turkey have to be fair with their water?
My proposal for the Water Issue
I believe that Turkey should have 50% of the water, Iraq should have 30%, and Syria to have 20%. I think Turkey should be able to do what ever they want with the water that runs through their country. The water is in their territory, therefor its Turkeys. They should be able to sell it or even trade it to Syria and Iraq for needs like oil. It is important that Turkey has water so they can grow their crops because Turkey is a big farming country. Turkey is also not as corrupt as Iraq and Syria. Turkey uses its water wisely to help keep all the people living there happy.
