عبدالله عبدالله وزير امور خارجه دولت موقت افغانستان در گفتگو با بخش دري راديو آزادي گفت: جريان آب هيرمند، كه به سوي ايران سرازير شد، كمتر از جرياني است كه در توافق نامه هاي بين دو كشور به امضا رسيده است و جريان آن فعلا موقتي است و جهت كمك به همسايه راه اندازي شده است. مهندس بيژن گلشاييان، كارشناس آب در لندن، در مصاحبه با راديو آزادي مي گويد: در توافقنامه ميان ايران و افغانستان بر سر جريان آب هيرمند، ماده اي وجود ندارد كه در صورت كمبود آب، ايران سهم كمتري ببرد. وي مي افزايد در سمت افغانستان تاسيسات آبي احداث شده است كه خلاف قرارداد است. دكتر چنگيز پهلوان، كارشناس مسائل حقوقي منطقه مقيم برلين، در گفتگو با راديو آزادي مي گويد: اين قرارداد مقداري از سو تفاهمات را در گذشته از ميان برد و مكانيسم استفاده از آب هيرمند را تنظيم كرد. هر نوع تفاهم جديد بايد به صورت تكمله بر آن در بيايد و نيازي به قرارداد جديد نيست.
