Afterwards, Mr. Steinmeier greeted the members of the municipal council and headed to the top floor of the building, where, facing the skyline of the old city, free and occupied, the various points that make up the Green Line were explained to him.

This was followed by a walking tour of the streets around the town hall, during which Mr. Giorkatzis referred to the start-up business community that has developed in the walled city, while President Christodoulidis stopped at the barricades and the guardhouse they encountered along the way, pointing out points about their history and current configuration.
