  • Description

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS OF CYPRUS ARRIVED IN ATHENS TODAY (MONDAY) BY AIR FOR A TWO-DAY VISIT WHICH HE SAID WAS NECESSARY BECAUSE THE CYPRUS PROBLEM WAS IN A CRUCIAL PHASE.

    HE WAS GREETED BY MR. KOSTOPILOS, GREEK FOREIGN MINISTER, THE CYPRUS FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. KYPRIANOU -- WHO ARRIVED EARLIER -- AND A REPRESENTATIVE OF KING CONSTANTINE.

    ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS SAID ON ARRIVAL THAT DURING HIS LAST VISIT TO ATHENS A COMMON POLICY ON THE CYPRUS PROBLEM, "WHICH WE HAVE FOLLOWED WITHOUT ANY DIVERSION," HAD BEEN DRAWN UP WITH THE GREEK GOVERNMENT.

    THE ARCHBISHOP SAID: "THE GREEK CYPRIOT PEOPLE ARE DEEPLY SATISFIED BECAUSE THE GREEK PREMIERS, DESPITE THE PRESSURES EXERTED ON GREECE, HAS STOOD FIRMLY ON THE LINES DRAWN, AND HAD NOT ALLOWED THE CYPRUS PROBLEM TO DEVIATE OUTSIDE THE FRAMEWORK OF THE UNITED NATIONS."
    HE HAD NO DOUBT THAT IN HIS ATHENS TALKS HERE THEY WOULD AGAIN REACH A COMMON DECISION "TO FACE THE CYPRUS PROBLEM IN A WAY EXCLUDING ANY COMPROMISE OR FRAUDULENT SOLUTION. THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE SOLUTION MUST BE BASED ON THE DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS CHARTER."
    (ON SUNDAY PRESIDENT MAKARIOS SAID THAT CYPRUS HAD BECOME AN IMPREGNABLE FORTRESS. "ITS FIGHTING FORCE AMOUNTS TO 25,00 WELL-TRAINED MEN BUT, WITH THEM, ALL GREECE WILL FIGHT.")
