  • [01] NICOSIA MAYOR - INTERVIEW

    The newly elected Mayor of Nicosia, the last divided capital in the world, Eleni Mavrou, reassured that she would enhance the collaboration with the Turkish Cypriots in order to promote projects for the improvement of the quality of life for both communities in Cyprus.

    In an interview with CNA, the new Nicosia Mayor said her priorities include the resolution of the citys problems, such as traffic, the revival of the old city and the promotion of projects of common interest for the Greek and Turkish Cypriots.

    Mavrou welcomed the fact that the Turkish Cypriot community viewed her election as Nicosia Mayor, the only European capital that is occupied by foreign troops, as a positive development.

    ``If my election has contributed the minimum to the creation of any mobility regarding the opening up of the Ledra crossing point, or any other issue, and has given a sense of optimism among the two communities of Cyprus, this is of particular importance to me, the new Mayor said.
