New border crossings to open in Nicosia

5 April 2016

The Mayor of North Nicosia Mehmet Harmanci (r) has said that an agreement has been reached with the Mayor of South Nicosia Constantinos Yiorkadjis (l), to open a crossing point for pedestrians at Paphos Gate and a crossing point for vehicles at the Caglayan Gate.

Efforts for the opening of those gates are continuing, Harmanci said, adding that when these projects materialise they will bring more life to the area.

During a visit within the Venetian Walls in North Nicosia, Harmanci stressed that this area has improved during the last two years. He added that the opening of the Cyprus American University campus in the vicinity as well as the restoration of the Armenian Church were positive contributions to the location.
