Water Pipeline from Turkey headaches

Greek Cypriots

Water ProjectWhile the countdown of the water transfer project that foresees water being transferred from Turkey to the TRNC via an underwater pipeline system simply known as the Project of the Century is nearing completion, it is leading to economic and political headache for the Greek Cypriot administration.

According to an article published in the Greek Cypriot Press, the Greek Cypriot administration created a council consisting of Greek Cypriot MP’s to deal with the negative repercussions the water will have for south Cyprus.

The South believes that once water reaches Northern Cyprus the property value of the TRNC will rise and in the case of a solution being found to the Cyprus problem, the Turkish Cypriots will demand more money for the return of their lands.

Greek Cypriot farmers and producers are also worried that with the arrival of the water the Turkish Cypriot farmers and producers will have an advantage over them as they will be able to develop in their fields and the Greek Cypriots won’t be able to compete with the Turkish Cypriots price wise as well.

  1. How the poor Greek Cypriots have suffered.
    First they were being murdered by terrorists (their own side). Then they suffered the indignity of defeat at the hands of Turkish troops when their own troops threw away their uniforms as they ran.
    Then they had 40 years bemoaning how badly they were being treated whilst the UN and the EU sided with them.
    Now they’re having to face economic reality.
    I weep for them. Oh sorry. No. They weep for themselves, loudly and with crocodile tears.
