Cyprus peace talks: Reconciliation at last? (part 2)

We meet Cypriot MEP Antigoni Papadopoulou on the Green Line, the UN-patrolled buffer zone that runs through the island like a scar. We then head to Famagusta: this port has been decaying under Turkish rule, with parts of its once glamorous seaside promenade now a forbidden military zone. But these days, activists from both communities are hoping to make the city a new symbol of reconciliation. We also ask if Cyprus is giving away EU passports too easily in a bid to lure foreign investors.

Watch the first part.
