    Archbishop of the Church of Cyprus Chrysostomos II has expressed certainty that, if Greece and Cyprus can coordinate their efforts and remain steadfast on positions of principle, the salvation of Cyprus could be possible.

    The Archbishop was speaking at the University of Athens, in the presence of Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Hieronymus, in an event for the anniversary of 9 July 1821, when Archbishop of Cyprus Kyprianos was hung and the bishops, abbots and community leaders of Cyprus were beheaded.

    In a speech on ``The contribution of the Church of Cyprus to the struggles of the nation``, Archbishop Chrysostomos II said 9 July 1821 was a landmark for all Hellenism.

    Referring to today`s struggles for a solution to the Cyprus problem, the Archbishop said Cyprus` accession to the EU has not been utilised to its full extent, adding that ``we loaded the responsibilities of Turkish intransigence on the shoulders of our side.``


    The European Mediterranean Arts Association (EMAA) is organising the art exhibition ``Cypriot Puzzle`` from July 11 to 31, at the Chimney House of Famagusta, in the Turkish occupied areas.

    The exhibition was presented in Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos and for the first time will be shown to the Turkish Cypriot community.

    It includes the 33 prize winners of the island-wide art competition ``Art Attack``, which was open to everyone and organised in 2007 by EMAA, in cooperation with the Cyprus Chamber of Fine Arts (EKATE) and the Action for Cooperation and Trust, which is funded by the UNDP and USAID.

    This first exhibition in the Turkish Cypriot community will be opened by Oya Talat and Katie Clerides on July 11, at the Chimney House.
