In the discussion about the Canal Istanbul project, we think we have come to point that there is no need to speak it anymore.
The explanation of Cahit Turan, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, concludes the discussions on this issue.
Minister Turan by saying, "Yes, all our projects are benefit projects," he has put an end to the discussions.
Minister Turan, who claims that those who claim that the Canal Istanbul project is a benefit project, will also benefit from this project, and says:
"Yes, all our projects are benefit projects."
"These are income generating projects for the country."
"What benefit means is profit."
"We are looking at the profitability of our projects feasibility."
"Why make a project that is not profitable."
With the announcement of the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Turan, it is officially announced that the Canal Istanbul project is a benefit project.
The focus of the following discussions will be on who will divide the benefit to be obtained.
Minister Turan, the income generating income for the country by defining the benefit, that is, the country claims to belong. Will only the country benefit from benefit or profit?
Will those who have already closed land in the region where this project will pass will not be caused by benefit or profit at all?
Isn't that what's been discussed since the beginning?
While some people entered into the effort of introducing Canal Istanbul as a necessity project, some people argued that it was only a benefit project. Now, with the words of Minister Turan, the issue is completely clarified.
What really worries us is that if the rent of the Canal Istanbul project comes too sweet, those who are granted with benefit will also attempt to open a Canal on the Anatolian side.
There is no channel in Thrace, but no reason why Anatolia does not, we will not be surprised if they start to cry.
They may even argue that one of the channels will be the entry channel to the Black Sea and the other as the exit channel!
As long as the profit is profit, as expected!
And let the sacs fill up once more with this benefit!
After that, no one should stand up and explain the necessity of the Canal Istanbul project. Because the name of the project was officially put as a benefit project.
Yes, there is talk of the country's profit, but isn't it obvious that there are others who can make a profit from this?
