Turkish Cypriot daily Havadis newspaper (30.10.15) reports that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan speaking on a TV program responded to questions regarding the water pipeline project.
Erdogan stated that if the Greek Cypriot side faces difficulties with water at one point, then the water brought from Turkey can be offered to them. “The water from Turkey can be a water for peace”, he said. However, he claimed that as it was expected the Greek Cypriot side rejected the offer.
Reminding that the massive project had cost 1 billion 600 million lira to construct, the Turkish President said that the breakaway regime will have potable water as well as water to use for agriculture because of this project.
