  • Description

    Archbishop Makarios, the deposed President of Cyprus, has denounced the Turkish invasion of the island. Speaking at his New York hotel on Saturday (20 July), the Archbishop said the invasion was not justifiable.

    The Archbishop, in New York to appeal for United Nations intervention in Cyprus, was receiving regular reports on the progress of fighting. Friends and key aides were with him, who told newsmen he had been saddened by the news. However, a spokesman added: "These are tough people. There is no weeping."
    Archbishop Makarios and his party arrived in New York on Thursday (16 July), after escaping from Cyprus with the help of Britain's Royal Air Force. He addressed the UN Security Council on Friday (19 July), and planned to fly to Washington on Monday (22 July) for talks with the United States Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger.

    On Saturday, after the news conference, the Archbishop sent telegrams to the leaders of all nations...apart from Turkey and Greece...asking for help. However, the message does not spell out exactly what help the Archbishop expects.
