    Nicosia, Jul 16 (CNA) The Cyprus government announced today a series of Confidence Building Measures (CBM) aimed to develop a sense of security among Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, within its policy for the Turkish Cypriots.

    Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides told a press conference that the measures deal with the opening of additional crossing points along the ceasefire line, demining (although the Greek Cypriot side has unilaterally begun the process for National Guard mines within the buffer zone) and the disengagement of military forces from the walled part of the capital Nicosia and from the wider Dherynia Famagusta and Strovilia areas, in eastern Cyprus.

    The proposals also include the restriction of military exercises at the level of a mechanised company and a squadron of medium range tanks and above at a distance of two kilometers from both ceasefire lines.
