Natasa Xenophontos-Koudouna, the Head of the IOM Office here, says the decision marks the beginning of fulfilling Nicosia’s commitments.

In an interview with Cyprus News Agency, she also refers to a recent incident of migrants who perished offshore and their bodies were washed up on the shores of Karpasia, in the northern, Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.
