Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades, has expressed the hope that as the barriers of communication between the two sides of the divide in Cyprus have been lifted, the line dividing the country will also be removed.

Anastasiades said on his Twitter account, following the implementation, on Thursday, of the interoperability of mobile phones across the island, that he and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci made their first phone call by which the interoperability of the mobile phones was implemented in practice.

My wish is that as we lifted the barriers of communication, we will also remove the line dividing our country, he added.
