The Saudi and Iraqi diplomatic channels are moving to resume previous talks to define the image of the upcoming cooperation, which has been severely interrupted by the changing situation in the region during the past two years.

Well-informed sources told (Al-Mada), "The Saudi ambassador to Iraq, Abdulaziz Al-Shammari, worked hard during the past two weeks to meet with some Iraqi officials, most notably the Minister of Agriculture Falah Hassan, to resume agreements that the governments of Haider al-Abadi and Adel Abdul-Mahdi had concluded in 2017 and 2018." And Iraq had received, during the Kuwait donor conference, pledges worth $ 30 billion, mostly in credit facilities and investment, from its neighbors, led by Saudi Arabia. 

According to the sources, Iraq had offered Salik, the investment arm of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, an area of ​​400,000 hectares of agricultural land, which is the agricultural land that is distributed all over Iraq, where Salik can choose what crops he wants to grow. According to what (Al-Mada) obtained from the preliminary details of the meeting, Salik adopts the method of agriculture in the countries in which it invests, and then exports the product to the local Saudi market. 

As the reports show that the Kingdom began to reduce its domestic program for wheat cultivation since 2008, as it plans to completely rely on imports by 2016. However, other sources in the Ministry of Agriculture told Al-Mada, that Iraq stipulated in the Kuwait Conference 2018 that crops should be given priority. Strategy such as wheat, barley, corn, sesame and rice to grow them.  The sources add that "some of the areas presented by the Ministry of Agriculture include areas in the governorates of Anbar and Muthanna."

 (Al-Mada) tried to contact the spokesperson for the Ministry of Agriculture, Hamid Al-Nayef, to obtain a comment, to no avail.

On the local side, in light of the lack of maturity of tomato crops in Karbala and Najaf to cover the needs of the market, their prices have increased significantly during the past two weeks, at a time when Iraq is still prohibiting the import of about 25 types of vegetables, table eggs and fish, as the authorities blame the (weak souls) for Manipulating local pricing. Citizens in Baghdad talked about the rise in the price of one kilo of tomatoes to 1,750 Iraqi dinars, up three times after the price was stable at 500 dinars or less, with prices varying from one region to another, as prices reached nearly 1,000 dinars in Baghdad within the average. While Iraq aims to export its summer local surplus of vegetables to avoid spoilage, as happened in the past two months, due to the lack of the necessary manufacturing industries, its water shares from the Tigris are still under consideration and constant review.
 
The Ministry of Water Resources said, according to the water expert and spokesperson, Awni Dhiab, "The farmer is still waiting for the (ball) season, which is the date of the first rains in the northern regions that depend, where it will be possible to plant wheat next December. Diab added to (Al-Mada), "The interim agreement on the Euphrates between us and the Turks, which we want to amend, includes 500 cubic meters per second, 58% of which are for Iraq and 42% for Syria."

As for the Tigris River, the spokesman notes, There are no binding agreements for Ankara to commit it to a fixed share for Iraq. It is fortunate that the Ilisu Dam is designed to generate electricity, which forces the Turks to open two or even four gates in some cases for the purpose of generation, but this matter may change. In light of their need for other advantages from Aliso. This is what affects, for us, the rain-fed areas.
