Turkey’s President Erdogan has proposed to King Abdullah that water from the undersea pipeline that runs between Anamur in southern Turkey and the  TRNC, could also be delivered to Jordan.

The TRNC former agricultural minister Ali Cetin Amcaoglu told ‘Kibris Postasi’ that the original protocol signed with Turkey envisaged the transfer of water from Anamur to third countries, if Turkey and the TRNC agreed.

If this new transfer project is realised, Amcaoglu, who was involved with the original pipeline project, said that the TRNC would become an important regional hub for water.
