    President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias expressed the wish that soon enough Cyprus will be free from the Turkish army, which occupies one third of the islands territory since the Turkish invasion of 1974.

    President Papoulias, who arrived Saturday in Cyprus 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, had this afternoon a private meeting with Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos.

    Asked about his meeting with President Papadopoulos, the Greek President said it was a friendly, cordial and patriotic meeting.

    Later on, the Greek President signed the visitors book at the Presidential Palace where he wrote: I am deeply touched, being here, in a historic place, a place of remembrance of the heroic struggle of Cypriot Hellenism for freedom and independence. I am glad that the struggle has given a lot and I expect that the great day will come soon, when Cyprus will be free from the occupation armies and when a final settlement will be achieved, a just and viable one, to the benefit and for the prosperity of the Cypriot Hellenism.

    The two Presidents departed from the Presidential Palace for the Nicosia Municipal Theatre to attend an oratorio to mark 30 years since Makarios death.

    On Sunday morning, the two Presidents will go to Kykkos 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.
