A group of trades unions, NGOs and political parties have banded together to form a platform on the water management issue.

The organisations met late last week to formulate an action plan against the water agreement to be signed between North Cyprus and Turkey.

Speaking on behalf of the platform, Ifran Celik, chairman of the Olive Producers Union, explained that the platform is against the draft agreement prepared by Turkey and the TRNC concerning water management and supply.

Pointing out that the water should not be privatised since it is a basic and human right; Celik added that it should provide supply to the people and for agriculture use in the lowest price.
