President Mustafa Akıncı has warned that repairs on the pipeline carrying fresh water from Turkey to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus might take longer than expected.

He said that the flow of water through the pipeline will temporarily cease.

Akıncı was speaking during a series of visits he carried out in the Girne district on Sunday.

Among the sites he visited was the Geçitköy Dam where the water pumped from Turkey is collected.

Akıncı pointed out that the pipeline supplying water to the TRNC from Turkey was an important project but that it was not right to be solely dependent on the water from Turkey.

“As I have repeatedly stated, it is important not to neglect our own local resources and to benefit from every drop of rainfall we receive. We need to collect rainfall as much as possible, prevent its flow to the sea as much as possible and more importantly save water,” he said.

Later, Akıncı came together with residents of the villages of Kayalar, Geçitköy and Dağyolu where he listened to their problems and answered questions on a variety of subjects.

The president evaluated the latest developments on the Cyprus Problem and highlighted the risks associated with rising tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean.
