The pipeline project that will transport water from Turkey to North Cyprus via pipes suspended under the Mediterranean Sea will be completed shortly, Turkish daily ‘Hurriyet’ reports.
İhsan Şener, who is in charge of promotion and media affairs, stated that the Turkish government expected the pipeline project to be completed and opened in September.
The project, dubbed ‘The Century’s Project’, will provide water from the Anamur Alaköprü Dam to North Cyprus, according to a written statement by Şener released on 23rd July.
The project was discussed during President Abdullah Gül’s visit to Nicosia on 20th July, when he attended a ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of Turkey’s military intervention on the island in 1974.
During the ceremony, Turkish Cypriot President Derviş Eroğlu said they expected to see the completion of “The Century’s Project” soon.
