Citing Greek Cypriot daily Politis, it was reported that following an initiative by the UN Secretary-General’s Representative in Cypru Colin Stewart,  “In the coming days, with the participation of local governments, maps will be put on the table to determine the regions, and official statements will be made regarding the development zones”.

The newspaper wrote that an agreement had been reached to build the road from Yiğitler to Pile, to open the area from the Pile plateau to Beyarmudu for housing construction, to determine the agricultural and livestock breeding area, and for the UN Peacekeeping Force to be fully responsible for the security and control of the region. 

It was reported that agreements on both sides had been reached and it was just a matter of fine-tuning the arrangements.
