    Cyprus remembers those killed in 1974 coup

    Nicosia, Jul 10 (CNA) - Memorial services will be held today in churches in the government-controlled areas of the Republic of Cyprus for those who lost their lives defending the Republic during the 1974 military coup against the democratically elected President of Cyprus.

    The military coup against the first President of the Republic, Archbishop Makarios, engineered by the military junta then ruling Greece, was followed five days later by the Turkish invasion, which resulted in the illegal occupation of the island's northern third and its de facto division.

    Today's memorial services in Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos, Paralimni, Polis Chrysochous and Evryhou will be attended by members of the cabinet and government officials, while the Nicosia memorial service will be held on July 15 in the presence of President Tassos Papadopoulos.

    On July 17, memorial services will be held for those who lost their lives during the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    The services in Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos, Paralimni, Polis Chrysochous and Evryhou will be attended by members of the cabinet and government officials, while the Nicosia memorial service will be held on July 20 in the presence of President Papadopoulos

    The Holy Synod of the Church of Cyprus has decided that on July 20 flags will be half-mast at all churches in the government-controlled areas and church bells will toll dolefully for 15 minutes.

    Similar events will be held in Cypriot communities abroad.

    Cyprus participating in US Fancy Food Show

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    New York, Jul 10 (CNA) -- Four leading Cypriot dairies exporting to the United States are participating with the Official Cyprus National Pavilion in the 51st International Fancy Food and Confection Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York City, from July 10 to 12.

    This year's Fancy Food Show is expected to present the most diverse display of specialty foods from around the world provided by 1,800 domestic exhibiting companies and 500 international companies.

    Trade Counselor of the Republic Cyprus to the US Dennis Droushiotis said "Cyprus has been successfully exhibiting at the Fancy Food Show for the last 20 years and this year we are excited to be participating as a member state of the EU," noting that "our participation is one of the most effective ways to encounter and convey our message of Cyprus' unique food products to importers, distributors, retailers and industry leaders in the US food industry."
