• Short Summary

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS AND MR. KYPRIANOU, THE CYPRUS FOREIGN MINISTER, FLEW INTO ALEXANDRIA LAST NIGHT (FRIDAY)?

  • Description

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS AND MR. KYPRIANOU, THE CYPRUS FOREIGN MINISTER, FLEW INTO ALEXANDRIA LAST NIGHT (FRIDAY) FOR WEEKEND TALKS WITH PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.

    PRESIDENT NASSER WAS AT THE AIRPORT TO GREET HIS GUEST.

    THERE HAS BEEN NO OFFICIAL INTIMATION FROM EITHER EGYPTIAN OR CYPRIOT SOURCES OF THE EXACT NATURE OF ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS'S VISIT. HOWEVER THE TALKS, EXPECTED TO LAST UNTIL MONDAY, WILL BE CENTRED ON CYPRUS DEVELOPMENTS.

    IT IS BELIEVED THAT ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS WANTS CHIEFLY POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS, ALTHOUGH THE QUESTION OF MILITARY AID MAY BE DISCUSSED.

    THE TALKS WILL BE OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE TO THE ARCHBISHOP SINCE PRESIDENT NASSER HAS CONSIDERABLE INFLUENCE IN THE AFRO-ASIAN COUNTRIES. PRESIDENT NASSER WILL BE SEEING LEADERS OF 13 ARAB STATES NEXT SATURDAY AND HEADS OF NON-ALIGNED STATES WILL BE MEETING IN EGYPT IN OCTOBER.

    SUPPORT FROM PRESIDENT NASSER FOR ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS COULD LEAD TO CONSIDERABLE SUPPORT FOR THE ARCHBISHOP AT THE NEXT UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
