  • [01] GREEK PRESIDENT - CYPRUS

    President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias arrives in Cyprus Saturday to participate in events commemorating the anniversary of the death of the late Archbishop Makarios III, the Republics first elected president after independence in 1960.

    Papoulias arrives at noon and later on he will have a private meeting with Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos at the Presidential Palace, before they both go to the Municipal Theatre to attend an oratorio to mark 30 years since Makarios death.

    In the evening, Papadopoulos will welcome Papoulias at his home, on the suburbs of Nicosia, for a private dinner.

    On Sunday morning, the two Presidents will go to Kykko Monastery for a church service, officiated by Bishop of Kykkos and Tiliria Nikiforos, who will then host a lunch for the high guests, attended also by the primate of the church of Cyprus Archbishop Chrysostomos II.

    Papoulias will have a meeting on Sunday afternoon with House President Demetris Christofias and former Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides, both of whom are running for the presidency in next Februarys elections. Papadopoulos has also announced his bid for reelection.

    On Sunday evening Papadopoulos and Papoulias will address a special memorial at the University of Cyprus, with the Greek Minister of Interior, Public Administration and Decentralisation Prokopis Pavlopoulos being the key note speaker.

    Papoulias leaves Cyprus on Monday.

    [02] MAKARIOS - 30 YEARS FROM HIS DEATH - EVENTS

    The Cyprus government is organizing this weekend a series of events to mark the 30th anniversary since the death of first President of Cyprus, the late Archbishop Makarios III.

    The events will be attended by President of Cyprus Tassos Papadopoulos and President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias who arrives Saturday in Cyprus.

    [03] FM - USA - CYPRUS QUESTION

    Minister of Foreign Affairs Erato Kozakou-Markoulli believes that the Cypriot government could do more to convince the US that it would be in their own interests to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem, which must be based on the needs of the Cypriot people and not on the interests of foreign countries.

    On the question of Cyprus, I believe that there is still a lot of work to be done to convince the US that it would be to their own benefit to reach a settlement, which would secure stability on the island and in the region. Of course, this solution should satisfy the interests and meet the expectations of the Cypriot people and not the interests of any other country, she said.
