  • Description

    As the Greek Government released the terms of the tripartite Cyprus agreement initialled at the London conference Visnews filmed in Athens Feb 23 a session of the Greek Parliament during which Greek Premier Constantine Karamanlis put the agreement before the House.

    The Opposition parties did not share Mr. Karamanlis' view that the agreement should be considered as a great success scored by the Government. There were angry shouts from the Opposition benches when he discussed the different pounts of the Cyprus plan. The leader of the Progressive Party, Mr. Spyro Markezinis, asked for a vote of no confidence. The leader of the United Democratic Left, Passalidis, and the first secretary of the Democratic Union blamed the Government for "having sold Cyprus".

    The Opposition parties are unanimous in their disapproval of the Government's handling of the Cyprus question and have lodged with the Speaker a protest against the Government describing the matter as " a national catastrophe."
