The fresh water supply from Turkey to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) has suffered a disruption, Turkey’s agriculture and forestry minister said on Saturday.
Bekir Pakdemirli told reporters in Turkey’s southern Mersin province that the Turkey-TRNC water pipeline didn’t break and that the reason for the disruption has yet to be ascertained.
Noting that the incident took place on late Wednesday, Pakdemirli said the TRNC has water stocks for eight to 10 months.
“I gave instructions to resolve this issue in a month. There is currently no water problem in the TRNC,” he stressed.
