  • Description

    At the request of Archbishop Makarios, Cypriot-Greek leader now exiled in Athens, six Cyprus mayors flew to see him on Wednesday. They discussed the British plan for Cyprus, of which the Archbishop had an advance copy. No statement was issued but today, June 20th, it is reported that the Greek Government and Archbishop Makarios himself have flatly rejected the plan, which was made public yesterday by British Prime Minister, Mr. Harold Macmillan, in the House of Commons.

    There are prospects in Britain of an all-party acceptance of the plan, in principle at least. It is thought that the Opposition will not divide the House when the White Paper is debated now Thursday, June 26th.

    The Turks, however, are also understood to have rejected the plan as presented. It was stated in Ankara that Turkey still favours a tripartite conference with Greece and Britain.
