    Cyprus celebrates Greek independence

    Nicosia, Mar 25 (CNA) - Cyprus held today liturgies and celebrations, including parades, in all free areas of the Republic, to commemorate the 25th of March 1821, when the Greek armed revolution officially began to free Greece from 400 years of Ottoman occupation.

    In a message the Greek Ambassador in Nicosia Christos Panagopoulos said that despite the collapse of the UN-led efforts in The Hague for a Cyprus settlement earlier this month, efforts to reach a solution must continue within the UN framework.

    The centre of the celebrations was Nicosia, where Salamis Bishop Varnavas led a doxology.

    The liturgy was held in the presence of Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos and other officials.

    In his address during the ceremony Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides said that Cyprus is still struggling to free its areas, occupied since the Turkish invasion of 1974.
