Hand over Maras (Varosha) in return for direct flights

2 June 2013

The EU Enlargement Commissioner, Stefhan Fule,made a proposal yesterday that in return for the TRNC handing over Maras to “its rightful owners”, the Greek Cypriots should allow direct flights to Ercan airport.

He feels that these two measures would be ideal for confidence building before negotiations start between the two sides.

The proposal will be made at the next meeting of foreign ministers in Brussels.

It is claimed that Mr Fule has already set up a technical committee to look into the possibility.
