    Nicosia, Feb 5 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government intends to open on a temporary basis a crossing point leading to the northern Turkish occupied areas of the country, until such time that another crossing point at Ledra street opens to Greek and Turkish Cypriots, the Director of the President's Diplomatic Office Ambassador Tasos Tzionis has said.
