    During their last meeting, on May 21th, held in the presence of Alexander Downer, UN Secretary Generals Special Adviser on Cyprus, the two leaders discussed the opening of a crossing point at Limnitis, on the north east, to facilitate movement to and from the islands northern Turkish occupied areas.

    In statements following the meeting, President Christofias had expressed disappointment regarding the stance of Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat on the opening of a crossing point in Limnitis.

    The government of Cyprus has pledged it is ready to open the crossing point of Limnitis to facilitate free movement but the Turkish Cypriot side has asked for the supply of electricity in the area of Kokkina as well as fuel in order to give its consent to the opening of the crossing point.
