Turkey Halfway Through Border Wall

Turkey has completed more than half of a 144-km wall on its border with Iran and will finish it next spring, the Housing Development Administration of Turkey (TOKI) has stated. “We started this [Iran wall] in the summer, but the season is very short here. Currently, 80 km of this 144 km have been completed and when seasonal weather conditions permit, God willing, we will have finished by next spring,” TOKI President Ergun Turan was quoted as saying by The Hurriyet Daily News as saying. The wall with Iran, which will stretch along the northern third of Turkey’s Iranian frontier, aims to prevent smuggling and infiltration by outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party  militants, Turkish officials have said.
