EU official says contributions beyond local bodies necessary for bicommunal waste water treatment plant in Nicosia


European Commission's Director General for Structural Reforms, Mario Nava, said contributions beyond the local bodies are needed for the bicommunal waste water treatment plant in Nicosia. In a tweet, he said that he had a good meeting with Mehmet Harmanci, so called "mayor" of the Turkish occupied part of Nicosia, where they discussed EU-funded projects and EU priorities in Nicosia. Nava said "we need a sustainable solution for the Turkish Cypriot debt for the bi-communal waste water treatment plant". Benefits, he added, "go well beyond Nicosia, so need contributions beyond the local bodies".
