A fourth crossing point between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides has been opened in West Nicosia, according to the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).

UNFICYP chief Zbigniew Wlosowicz welcomed the fact that "another road to reconciliation on the island has been opened" over the weekend.

Last week, the UN mission reported that as of 4 May, approximately 170,000 Greek Cypriots had crossed from south to north while 75,000 Turkish Cypriots had made the reverse trip.
