The two countries will carry out joint cleaning work on the legs of the bridge between Turkey and Greece on the Meriç River.
A protocol will be signed on January 9 to clean up logs and tree branches accumulated at the feet of the bridge, which lies between the customs gates of Ipsala and Cape in Greece, and provides reciprocal transit between the two countries. The teams will also conduct joint cleaning work on January 10th.
According to the statement made by the Ipsala Provincial Governor’s Office, the delegation headed by Provincial Governor Omer Dir met with the Deputy Governor of Alexandroupolis Dimitrios Petrovist and the accompanying delegation at the border line.
The Turkish and Greek delegations who examined the bridge agreed to repeat the cleaning work that took place 8 years ago on the sidewalks of the bridge.
Governor Der stated that nearly two million people pass through the bridge connecting the two countries every year, and noted that the cleaning work will be done by government hydraulic works teams and a technical team from Greece.
