  • [01] Greek leadership in Alexandria for landmark Cathedral's re-dedication

    The landmark Orthodox Cathedral in the ancient port city of Alexandria was re-dedicated on Sunday during a venerable ecclesiastical service officiated by Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa Theodoros in the presence of Greek President Karolos Papoulias.

    The service re-dedicating the Annunciation Cathedral, which underwent a comprehensive renovation, was among the first items, in fact, on Papoulias' itinerary during his official visit to Egypt.

    He will be received by Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak in Cairo on Monday.

    A high-ranking ministerial delegation from Athens was led by Tourism Development Minister Fani Palli-Petralia, while several main opposition deputies as well as former prime minister Constantine Mitsotakis attended the event. The service was also attended by local leaders and representatives of other faiths.

    The leadership of the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation, one of the major benefactors of the effort to renovate and refurbish the Cathedral, also attended the ceremony.

    [02] Nakos addresses Cypriot-American event in US

    Deputy Interior and Public Administration Minister Athanassios Nakos on Saturday addressed the Cypriot Federation of America's annual congress in New York City, where he stressed that the Annan peace plan to resolve the long-standing Cyprus issue is "a thing of the past."

    He also noted that "the European acquis communautaire is a significant reality that no one can now ignore in efforts for a solution to the Cyprus issue."

    Finally, Nakos conveyed greetings to the congress' delegates from Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, while citing the "excellent and steadfast cooperation" between Athens and the government of Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos.
