Elders visit Cyprus

Rather nice footage from earlier this week, when Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter and Lakhdar Brahimi visited Cyprus to boost the peace process as part of their activity with the Elders. They start off with President Christofias in the South, then go north at the recently opened Ledra Street crossing, meet with President Talat at his residence, and then give a joint press conference at the Ledra Palace Hotel (where I have certain memories).


It's nice to see a peace process going the right way. (The keen-eyed will spot Mabel van Oranje in the background.) (Follow-up video here, of the Elders meeting with young Cypriots.)
