    Cyprus commemorates army officers killed in helicopter crash

    Nicosia, Aug 18 (CNA) - Cyprus commemorated today the tragic loss of its late National Guard Commander, Lieutenant Evangelos Florakis and the other four army officers, killed July 10, 2002, when their helicopter crashed near the south western town of Paphos. The other army officers killed were Air Force Commander, Brigadier Stelios Demenagas, Lieutenant Nikos Georgiou and the two helicopter pilots, Flight Lieutenant Paris Athanasiades and Flank Officer Michalis Shiakallis.

    In his eulogy, at a memorial service held here for the five army officers, Cyprus new National Guard Commander, Lieutenant Athanasios Nikolodemos stressed that "our vision is to establish powerful, effective and efficient armed forces that will consist a reliable deterrent and will fight to win a war, should this be needed". He also stressed the need to continue efforts "to upgrade the National Guard's fighting capability, for the sake of Cyprus, which struggles for the survival of Hellenism on this holy land."

    He also noted that the five offices were killed while serving their homeland and stressed that the struggle to reunite Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of 1974 has had a cost both for Cyprus and Greece since dozens of their army officers have been killed, in time of peace, while on duty.
