The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has said that the pipeline project that will transport water from Turkey to northern Cyprus via tunnels under the Mediterranean Sea will be completed shortly.
The AKP’s İhsan Şener, who is in charge of promotion and media affairs, stated that the party expected the pipeline project to be completed and opened in September.
The project, dubbed “The Century’s Project,” intends to provide water from the Anamur Alaköprü Dam to northern Cyprus, according to a written statement by Şener released on July 23.
The project was discussed during President Abdullah Gül’s visit to Nicosia on July 20, during which 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.
