    Background: PRESIDENT MAKARIOS OF CYPRUS FLEW TO ATHENS TODAY (TUESDAY) AT THE INVITATION OF THE GREEK GOVERNMENT FOR A ROUND OF TALKS ON THE CYPRUS PROBLEM.

    AT THE ATHENS AIRPORT THE PRESIDENT WAS GREETED BY THE GREEK FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. COSTOPOULOS AND THE CYPRUS FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. KYPRIANOU. PRESIDENT MAKARIOS TOLD REPORTERS THAT GREEK CYPRIOTS WERE PREPARED TO "FIGHT AND DIE" RATHER THAN ACCEPT A SOLUTION CONTRARY TO THEIR NATIONAL DESIRE. "I AM CONVINCED THAT THE GREEK GOVERNMENT AND THE WHOLE GREEK PEOPLE SHARE THIS FIRM DESIRE OF THE GREEK CYPRIOTS", HE ADDED.

    THE PRESIDENT, WHO FLEW FROM NICOSIA THIS MORNING, SAID "I HAVE COME TO ATHENS AT THE INVITATION OF THE GREEK GOVERNMENT FOR TALKS ON THE CYPRUS PROBLEM FOR WHICH, AS I UNDERSTAND, PRESSURE HAS BEEN EXERTED RECENTLY TO THE PROBLEM."
    (LATER TODAY PRESIDENT MAKARIOS HAD A FOUR-HOUR DISCUSSION WITH MR. GEORGE PAPANDREOU - THE GREEK PRIME MINISTER. A JOINT COMMUNIQUE ISSUED AFTER THE TALKS SAID THAT GREECE AND CYPRUS WERE IN AGREEMENT THAT THE CYPRUS QUESTION SHOULD BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY WHEN IT MEETS IN NOVEMBER. THE COMMUNIQUE EMPHASISED THE "FULL IDENTITY OF VIEWS" BETWEEN GREECE AND CYPRUS AND SAID THAT "IN CASE OF TURKISH AGGRESSION THE TWO STATES WILL FIGHT JOINTLY WITH ALL THEIR FORCES".

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS FLEW BACK TO NICOSIA TONIGHT.)
