"Changes may take place in structure of some ministries. We have made a brief assessment on this issue. I can not give further details today because this work has not been concluded yet," Turkish Government Spokesman and Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek said on Wednesday.

Speaking after the first Council of Ministers meeting that was held after formation of the 60th government, Cicek wished the new government to be beneficial to the country, nation and democracy.

"At this first meeting, we have made an assessment on government program," he remarked, adding that, "following the government program, we will submit an action plan."

Cicek said that water shortage and environmental issues would be one of the top priorities of new Turkish government, adding that the government would need to introduce a new structural framework to deal with problems.

"Environmental issues occupy the agenda both in the international arena as well as in Turkey and we will need to deal with that issue through a deeper assessment and we will need to introduce a structural framework," he told reporters.
