  • Description

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS OF CYPRUS BECAME THE FIRST EUROPEAN HEAD OF STATE TO PAY AN OFFICIAL VISIT TO INDEPENDENT ZAMBIA YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WHEN HE ARRIVED TO BEGIN A FOUR-DAY GOODWILL VISIT. THE CYPRIOT LEADER RECEIVED A WARM WELCOME WHEN HE LANDED AT LUSAKA, WHERE HE WAS GREETED BY PRESIDENT KENNETH KAUNDA.

    DURING HIS GOODWILL VISIT, ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS WILL BE KEPT BUSY IN DISCUSSIONS AND SIGHTSEEING WITH PRESIDENT KAUNDA.

    AT THE AIRPORT TO SEE HIM ON HIS ARRIVAL FROM TANZANIA, ON HIS TOUR OF EAST AFRICAN COUNTRIES, WAS AN EXCITED CYPRIOT-FLAG WAVING CROWD. ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS DELIGHTED THEM WHEN HE DEPARTED FROM THE SCHEDULED PROGRAMME TO WALK OVER AND SEE THEM.

    THE CYPRIOT LEADER MET DIPLOMATIC REPRESENTATIVES FROM RUSSIA AND NORTH KOREA, BEFORE INSPECTING A GUARD OF HONOUR.

    ALTHOUGH CYPRUS HAS NO DIPLOMATIC REPRESENTATION IN ZAMBIA AND VIRTUALLY NO TRADE LINKS WITH THE COUNTRY, THE ARCHBISHOP IS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS A WIDE RANGE OF SUBJECTS IN HIS TALKS WITH PRESIDENT KAUNDA.

    IN THE NEXT TWO DAYS, HE WILL INSPECT SEVERAL MINE AREAS OF ZAMBIA, INCLUDING THE IMPORTANT COPPERBELT CENTRE OF KITWE.

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS IS DUE TO LEAVE ZAMBIA ON TUESDAY.
