Speaking in a television interview, he said that the 75 million cubic metres of water which will be transferred annually, is not only potable but would also be used for agriculture as well.

Dincyurek thanked Turkish officials who were involved with the ‘Project of the Century’ and said that this would bring new life to the Turkish Cypriots.
