Noting that the incident took place on late Wednesday, Pakdemirli said the TRNC has water stocks for eight to 10 months.

“I gave instructions to resolve this issue in a month. There is currently no water problem in the TRNC,” he stressed.

He inspected the water pipeline in the Anamur district of Mersin via helicopter.
