Call to move UN camp

By Kerem Hasan

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Kudret Özersay confirmed to Cyprus Today that he had requested, during meetings with UN officials in New York last week, relocation of the General Stefanik camp on the main Salamis road next to Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU).

The camp, currently housing Sector Four Unficyp peacekeepers, has been there since 1964 “but today it is right next door to dormitories that house thousands of university students” said Dr Özersay, adding: “It is therefore not appropriate for the area to be used for military purposes.”
