Prime Minister of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Dervis Eroglu, said Tuesday directing flood waters from the Greek Cypriot side to the TRNC’s regions of settlements was an inhuman behaviour.
Prime Minister Eroglu and an accompanying delegation of ministers visited the Guzelyurt region and observed the disaster caused by the flood waters that came from the Greek Cypriot administration side.
Speaking live on the Bayrak Television (BRT), Eroglu said that the TRNC faced a great disaster.
We are working to alleviate the pain of our people and to minimize the damage, Eroglu said.
Unfortunately, many homes were filled with mud and water. Many people do not have a place to sleep in, Eroglu said.
A committee is working to determine the amount of damage that was made by flood waters. A meeting to assess the situation will take place in Lefkosa in the afternoon, Eroglu said.
There is a great amount of damage that was made by flood waters in Guzelyurt. Humans in the region are in a state of panic, Eroglu said.
I thank our troops and other personnel for their efforts to help those affected by flood waters, Eroglu also said.
