  • Description

    THE GREEK DEFENCE MINISTER, MR. GAROUPHALIAS, ARRIVED IN CYPRUS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) FOR TALKS WITH PRESIDENT MAKARIOS AND LEADING MEMBERS OF THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT.

    ON ARRIVAL AT NICOSIA AIRPORT, HE WAS WELCOMED BY GENERAL GRIVAS, COMMANDER OF THE CYPRUS DEFENCE FORCES AND MEMBERS OF THE CYPRUS COUNCIL OF MINISTERS. BEFORE LEAVING TO CALL ON PRESIDENT MAKARIOS, MR. GAROUPHALIAS INSPECTED A GUARD OF HONOUR MOUNTED BY THE CONTINGENT OF THE GREEK ARMY STATIONED ON THE ISLAND.

    PRESS REPORTS HAVE SUGGESTED THAT MR. GAROUPHALIAS WILL TRY TO DISSUADE PRESIDENT MAKARIOS FROM CONCLUDING AN AGREEMENT WITH THE SOVIET UNION. BUT ASKED LAST NIGHT WHETHER HE WOULD TRY TO PREVENT THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT FROM ACCEPTING AID FROM OTHER COUNTRIES, MR. GAROUPHALIAS REPLIED: "NO, I DO NOT FELL MYSELF ABLE TO STOP THE GOVERNMENT OF AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY FROM ACTING AS IT LIKES". THE MINISTER ALSO SAID HE WAS CONFIDENT THAT THE COMMON ASPIRATION ON UNION OF CYPRUS WITH GREECE WOULD BE ACCOMPLISHED.

    TODAY THE DEFENCE MINISTER WILL VISIT THE CAMP OF THE GREEK ARMY CONTINGENT JUST OUTSIDE NICOSIA.
