The UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) announced on Monday the clearance of nine suspected hazardous areas each on both sides of the divided island, amounting to a total area of 210,882 square meters.

The achievement of this confidence-building measure underlines the importance of dialogue, trust and co-operation for an enduring peace across Cyprus,” said UN Secretary-General/Head of UNFICYP Special Representative, Elizabeth Spehar.

Mine clearing was one of the special measures agreed by both Cypriot community leaders on 26 February 2019 as part of their commitment towards a mine-free Cyprus.
