  • Description

    Speaking at the anniversary celebrations of the 1821 revolution - the struggle by which the Greeks won independence from the Turks - Archbishop Makarios announced that Greece will again file an appeal over Cyprus before the next session of the United Nations General Assembly.

    From the pulpit he recalled the Greeks heroic struggles of 137 years ago, and added, "Cypriots now are adding new pages to this glorious history. They will not surrender to either violence or threats".

    "The Cypriot people" he said, "insist on self determination". A settlement in Cyprus could only be attained through direct negotiations between Britain and "the people of Cyprus".
