    President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias arrived in Cyprus Saturday to participate in events commemorating the anniversary of the death of the late Archbishop Makarios III, the Republics first elected president after independence in 1960.

    In the afternoon he will have a private meeting with Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos at the Presidential Palace, before they both go to the Municipal Theatre to attend an oratorio to mark 30 years since Makarios death.

    In the evening, Papadopoulos will welcome Papoulias at his home, on the suburbs of Nicosia, for a private dinner.

    On Sunday morning, the two Presidents will go to Kykko Monastery for a church service, officiated by Bishop of Kykkos and Tiliria Nikiforos, who will then host a lunch for the high guests, attended also by the primate of the church of Cyprus Archbishop Chrysostomos II.

    Papoulias will have a meeting on Sunday afternoon with House President Demetris Christofias and former Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides, both of whom are running for the presidency in next Februarys elections. Papadopoulos has also announced his bid for reelection.
