  1. Please be careful not to present wrong news! there is no such term as “sweet water”! It should be “freshwater”. Zarivar not only is not the largest freshwater lake in the world, i doubt if it is even largest in Iran! there are a number of great lakes in North America each of them as large as almost half of the area of Iran!
