Spokesman for President Akinci Baris Burcu, has issued a written statement regarding the opening of the Derinya and Aplic border crossing points.

The statement said that the search for mines and clearance activities on the main road in Derinya will be finalised following tests to be carried out by the UN mine search teams on 24th October.

Burcu also added that after it is considered to be safe, work on widening the road, fencing off the surrounding areas and completing the infrastructure will begin.

Explaining that alternative routes for both crossing points had come onto the agenda while mines searching activities were still continuing, he said: “As a result of the initiatives taken by Akinci and the contacts he held with all concerned sides, in accordance with the will of both peoples, a decision similar to the one taken at the Aplic crossing point, was taken to use the main road at the Derinya border crossing”.

Burcu also added that Akinci had shared this decision with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
