Foreign Minister Ioannis Kaslides of Cyprus will appeal directly to UNFICYP director Colin Stewart on Monday for the new desolate development of Turkey’s Valosha in Famagusta.
The isolated Turkish Cyprus government in the northern part of the divided island said that despite a 1984 UN Security Council resolution, only its legitimate residents could resettle the town. Nevertheless, we opened another beach in Valosha, a fenced area of Famagusta.
The meeting at Nicosia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs will take place after the UN’s guarantee that their position on Barosha remains unchanged and that they are closely monitoring the situation.
Kasurides has already stated that he intends to remind Stewart that Cyprus has responded to his request for specific actions for the benefit of the Turkish Cypriots.
Therefore, he added that Nicosia was not witnessed by the occupying forces and demanded a similar response from the other side.
According to last week’s report, the length of the commercially cleared section of Golden Sand Beach in Barosha is about 600 meters.
The exiled Mayor of Famagusta, Simos Ioano, urged the government last week to respond to Turkey’s provocation.
He added that the Famagusta municipality has already sent three written complaints to the UN Secretary-General.
