During the meeting, Harmanci said that the opening of the crossing point at Famagusta Gate to vehicles would ease the waiting times for people using the Metehan crossing point. The opening of Paphos Gate to pedestrian crossings will allow the Lokmaci border some respite from numbers of tourists using that crossing, he noted.
