  • Description

    Thousands of Cypriots packed the streets around Archbishop Makarios' residence in Nicosia on Monday (14 February) following the news that the Cypriot leader had formally rejected Greek Government suggestions for a reshuffle of his cabinet.

    The present crisis, centring around Enosis (union with Greece), is undermining the Cyprus Government's authority for resuming talks with the Turkish-Cypriot community on ending the eight-year-old quarrel between the Greek and Turkish factions. A date for a resumption of the intercommunal talks, with a United Nations representatives and Greek and Turkish advisers taking part, has yet to be fixed.

    SYNOPSIS: Thousands of Cypriots from all over their island gathered outside Archbishop Makarios' residence in Nicosia on Monday (14 February) following the news that the Cypriot leader had formally rejected Greek Government suggestions for a reshuffle of his cabinet.

    The present crisis over the Enosis question -- union with Greece -- is undermining the Government's authority in resuming settlement terms. Archbishop Makarios has repeatedly tried to settle the eight-year dispute between the Greek and Turkish factions of the island's population.

    A date for the resumption of the inter-communal talks, with a United Nations representative and Greek and Turkish advisers taking part, has not been fixed. Archbishop Makarios walked through the crowded streets to his office on Monday, thanking many of the people who had gathered to express their support.
