President Ersin Tatar will attend a ceremony to mark the second anniversary of the partial reopening of the fenced-off town of Maraş (Varosha), Kibris Postasi reports.
On 8 October 2020, part of the town was demilitarised and Democracy Street and a section of the beach (3.5 percent of the town) was opened to the public as part of a pilot scheme.
The Famagusta suburb has been closed since 1974 when its occupants fled. Maraş (Varosha) has since been used as a bargaining chip in the numerous attempts to solve the Cyprus problem.
