The President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades spoke on Thursday on the phone with the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, and discussed the issue of crossing points.
As CNA learns, the exchange took place at noon, at the initiative of President Anastasiades.
Last Tuesday, Dr. Leontios Kostrikis, a member of the Scientific Committee on the pandemic, was asked during a press conference about the ways the scientific team will be able to ascertain the epidemiological situation in the Turkish-occupied areas of Cyprus in order for the crossing points to open. Kostrikis replied that the scientific team will likely ask specific questions on epidemiological and demographic data through the Bicommunal Technical Committee on Health, while also providing the same data for the government controlled areas.
