President Akinci and President Anastasiades had coffee at the Buyuk Han in North Nicosia this morning. This is the first time that President Anastasiades has crossed the border to the North since he was elected president.

Both leaders were accompanied by the mayors of North and South Nicosia.

This event drew huge press interest and locals turned out en masse to watch.

After coffee, they left the Han and walked towards the Lokmaci border point to cross over into Ledra Street.

Reports say there was as much interest shown by locals in the South as in the North. Members of the public, holding olive branches, greeted both presidents.
