    Greek Cypriots face delays in crossing divide

    Nicosia, Apr 25 (CNA) - Thousands of Greek Cypriots have been gathering since early this morning at the checkpoints to cross the dividing line, after the Turkish occupation regime decided to ease its restrictions on the free movement of Cypriots.

    By 11:30 local time (08:30 GMT), 412 Turkish Cypriots had crossed over into the government-controlled areas of the Republic, while it appears that about 200 Greek Cypriots had managed to cross over into the Turkish occupied areas.

    Schwimmer says easing restrictions step of historic proportion

    Nicosia, Apr 25 (CNA) - Secretary General of the Council of Europe Walter Schwimmer has called the easing of the easing of restrictions on the free movement of Cypriots, imposed by the Turkish occupation regime, as ''a step of historic proportion towards a settlement of the Cyprus issue''.

    Spokesman says delays in movement due to procedures

    Nicosia, Apr 25 (CNA) - Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides said today that "the delays experienced in the movement of Greek Cypriots to the occupied areas are due to the extremely time consuming procedures followed by the occupying regime at the crossing-points.

    In a written statement, Chrisostomides said "the obstruction that is being observed cannot be explained, unless Mr. Denktash after getting publicity for partly lifting restrictions in movement that he himself has imposed and maintains for 29 years, has lost interest in further facilitating the crossing over".

    "On our part the crossing over of Turkish Cypriots to the free areas is continuing smoothly without any delay and the facilities provided for the transfer of Turkish Cypriots to the destinations they wish to visit are continuing quite effectively", he added.
