A bi-communal demonstration was held this morning at the Derinya border crossing. Protestors were demanding that the border be opened.
Meanwhile, police maintained strict security measures.
The demonstration, organised by the Famagusta Initiative in the north and the ‘Our Famagusta Organisation’ in the south, was attended by NGOs, local officials and a good number of locals. Representative for Famagusta Initiative Okan Dağlı, said that in May, 2015, as a confidence building measure, it had been agreed by both community leaders that Derinya would be opened. Three years later, the border remains closed, he said
