2008-06-12 11:10:58

Nicosia, Jun 11 - The opening of the Limnitis crossing point, on the north-west of the island is a top priority for the Greek Cypriot side, Cyprus Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said, noting that there is a relevant provision within the 21st March Agreement between President Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

Responding today to questions after the Cabinet’s meeting, the Spokesman also said that the opening of the specific checkpoint does not entirely depend on the Greek Cypriot side and it can therefore take place through a mutual agreement between the two sides.

He added that regarding confidence building measures, the Government considers the opening of Limnitis to be a top priority.
