The Turkish government will soon launch a new effort to build earthquake-proof and modern houses for the people under the urban transformation plan, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said, vowing to finish the construction of new residential areas for the earthquake victims in one year.

Axar.az reports that Erdogan, accompanied by his allies, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) Chairman Devlet Bhaçeli and New Welfare Party (YRP) Chairman Fatih Erbakan, laid the foundation of more than 30,000 houses in Nurdagi district of Gaziantep.

Eleven provinces were destroyed by two deadly Feb. 6 earthquakes that killed more than 50,000 people. Erdoğan has promised to construct around 650,000 houses for the earthquake victims in one year.

“We have kept all our promises to our people in the past 20 years. We are working day and night to deliver this. Our works continue without any stop,” Erdogan said.
