    The leaders and representatives of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot political parties met on Wednesday at Ledra Palace in the UN-controlled buffer zone for their regular meeting and agreed to support the leaders of the two communities in their efforts to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    [02] SPOKESMAN - LIMNITIS

    The opening of the Limnitis crossing point, on the north-west of the island is a top priority for the Greek Cypriot side, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said noting that there is a relevant provision within the 21st March Agreement.

    Responding to questions after the Cabinets meeting, the Spokesman also said that the opening of the specific checkpoint does not entirely depend on the Greek Cypriot side and it can therefore take place through a mutual agreement between the two sides.

    He added that for the Government, as regards the confidence building measures the opening of Limnitis is a top priority.
