Abadi orders to solve the obstacles to maintenance of the Mosul Dam

Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi ordered Thursday evening to resolve the obstacles facing the Italian company Trevi, which is maintaining the Mosul dam.
This came during the sponsorship of a technical meeting on the Mosul Dam, between the Ministry of Water Resources and the Italian company supervising the treatment of the dam and the engineering advisory team, according to a statement by the Office of Abadi.
During the meeting, which was attended by the Italian ambassador and the US ambassador to Baghdad, Abadi addressed the need to address obstacles, continue work on the project and maintain the Mosul dam, which is of great importance in providing water and electricity to the citizens.
Last year, Trevi won a contract worth more than $ 2 billion to strengthen the dam on the Tigris River, about 50 kilometers from the city of Mosul.
The facility, which was built under Saddam Hussein, suffers from a structural problem that reports that it could collapse, posing a threat to the lives of 1.5 million people.
The Kurdish Peshmerga regained control of the strategic dam with the support of US aviation in August 2014, a few months after Isis took over.
