Mining on both sides of the island destroying the environment

North Cyprus News - Mining

Seven non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in North and South Cyprus have issued a joint press statement to draw attention to the environmental destruction created by mining on the island.

The statement made it clear that the damage caused by the mines of Fugasa, Mitsero, Skuriotissa in the South and Beskparmak and other mines in North Cyprus is visibily worsening and that continuous mining should be stopped.

The NGOs state that they will take action on both sides of the divide if mining is allowed to continue unabated.
