Every four or five years since 1974, the issue of opening the abandoned and fenced city that lies inside the Green line in Cyprus is brought forward. This sparks a recurring, yet fruitless discussion with Cypriot government and state institutions on one side and refugees, individually or collectively, on the other. The discussion is about whether the city should be returned right away in its current condition to its inhabitants or alternatively be kept fenced for some years in order to be restored.
