Nicosia has made representations to the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) following the harassment of Nicosia municipality crews working to clean and shore up a dilapidated building, which housed the Spitfire coffeeshop, at Paphos Gate in Nicosia’s old town, CNA has learned.
 
Diplomatic sources have told CNA that from the very first moment that the Turkish troops harassed the Nicosia Municipality crews representations were made to UNFIYP and that the Cyprus government is in constant contact with the peacekeeping force today as well on this issue.
 
Moreover, they noted that UNFICYP is making efforts for the issue to be resolved, however there is no result so far.
