The cabinet on Wednesday approved revised plans to grant financial assistance to Greek Cypriot farmers living in the north, and also to beekeepers, fishermen and agricultural artisans there.

Deputy government spokesperson Niovi Parissinos said the agriculture minister, in collaboration with presidential commissioner Photis Photiou, held consultations with the Greek Cypriot community leaders in the north where people have resettled.

The number of Greek Cypriots and Maronites currently living in north is around 300.
