European Commission adds Derinya and Lefke-Aplic to list of crossings

The European Commission amended the Green Line Regulation concerning the movement of goods and persons across the buffer zone to add Derinya and Lefke-Aplic to the list of authorised crossings on Wednesday.

“As further concrete support, the Commission stands ready to financially contribute to works related to the opening of the crossing points,” it said.

In May the Cypriot leaders agreed on a package of confidence-building measures including the opening of new crossing points. The matter is being dealt with by the bi-communal Technical Committee on crossing points which, in cooperation with the UNFICYP is currently examining the practical details and financial needs involved in developing the necessary infrastructure of the new crossing points.
