President Akinci has said that the work to open the Aplic border crossing will be completed by the end of the year.
The President made reference to both Aplic and Derinya border crossings during a visit by Lefke Mayor Aziz Kaya and a delegation from the Lefke Platform.
Akinci commented that there had been alternative suggestions regarding both crossings, to construct new roads leading to both crossing points. However, the original road at Aplic will be used after mine clearing operations.
Regarding Derinya, he said that technical work continued and the concerns of the military had been noted.
Akinci promised that both border crossings would be opened because the political will existed to implement both projects.
