The interim Tourism and Environment Minister, Mehmet Harmanci, made an announcement earlier today (Saturday). In his press statement, Mr Harmanci said that his ministry had decided that its policy was not to go ahead with the proposed storage facility.

He said that he was personally against the plan and agreed with the criticisms made by environmentalists and the general public.

The Council of Ministers will meet to formally approve the decision, but Mr Harmanci says that the issue had already been discussed.
