  • Description

    Cyprus President Spyros Kyprianou is in Greece for talks with Prime Minister Constantine Karamanlis and other members of the Greek government.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr Kyprianou arrived in Athens on Saturday (5 August) and was greeted by Greek Foreign Minister George Rallis. The meetings that will take place are the first since the United States lifted its arms embargo against Turkey, imposed in 1974 after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Last week the Cypriot government made its bitterness over the decision known to U.S. ambassador to Cyprus, Galen Stone.

    Mr Kyprianou's visit is described as private -- after his meetings he will stay in Greece for a holiday as a guest of the government. Before leaving Cyprus the President attended services commemorating his predecessor, Archbishop Makarios, who died a year ago. He also addressed a memorial gathering in Nicosia. On his arrival in Athens Mr Kyprianou spoke about the purpose of his visit.
