He added that an Investigative Commission under direct control of the government will be formed to cooperate with international organizations and construction units to quickly investigate the cause for the recent dam collapse. The massive rescue efforts have been complicated by the remote location of the disaster. Around 50 dam projects currently will be put under investigation.
