The Police are ready for the opening of crossing points when instructions are given to do so, said Police Spokesman Christos Andreou.

He told CNΑ that police members who were transferred from the crossing points when they closed due to the coronavirus outbreak and Health Ministry decrees, are ready to return to their posts and operate in the same conditions.

“Police are ready to man the crossing points and begin registering those who enter the free areas and those who cross to the occupied areas”, he said.

According to an official announcement, following the joint agreement between President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, the Republic is ready to allow the movement from the crossing points of certain groups of people, starting from June 8. The following groups must show a negative COVID-19 test, to have taken place 72 hours prior to their crossing.

Government Spokesman Kyriakos Koushos said on Friday the Government is ready to operate the crossing points from Monday.
The Cyprus government on Friday announced the special rules that will apply for the movement from the crossing points for certain groups of people, as of June 8.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led reunification talks have so far failed to yield a positive outcome.
