An­nounc­ing the in­creases on Mon­day, Fi­nance Min­is­ter Ser­dar Denk­taş said there was no pos­si­bil­ity of fuel prices fall­ing in the near fu­ture, in light of ris­ing ex­change rates, but had the gov­ern­ment not al­ready in­ter­vened, prices at the pumps would have been 80 ku­ruş higher.

Of 42 coun­tries in the ree­gion, he added, the TRNC is 17th in terms of na­tional min­i­mum wage, and third in terms of fuel price.
