Greek Cypriot political party AKEL has said that [South] Cyprus will not be bound to keep the water agreement made between Turkey and North Cyprus.

AKEL issued a statement noting that the water project is a plan that should have been signed off by a unified federal Cyprus and not a regime that is not recognised.

Responding to this statement, chairman of the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) Mehmet Ali Talat said

“Whether it is binding or not, this is not an issue that can be determined by a statement made by a political party”. He added: “This is a meaningless statement. It is not clear yet what international agreements will or will not bind the United Cyprus State”. Talat also asked why this agreement could not bind the federal state. “What kind of objections are there for it?” he said.

Talat went on to say that he had even looked this issue with former Greek Cypriot President Demetris Christofias during the Cyprus negotiations and discussed on how the water would be managed be under the federal authority.
