  • [01] PILGRIMAGE CANCELLED

    A pilgrimage from the village of Pyrgos in the Paphos district to the church of Saint Mamas in the Turkish occupied area of Morphou, via the Limnitis checkpoint, was called off on Wednesday, due to delays caused by the Turkish Cypriot side.

    A total of 650 Greek Cypriot pilgrims on 27 coaches were set to cross over to the Turkish occupied areas.

    So-called police officers of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime boarded the first two coaches to arrive at the checkpoint, on the northwest, in order to check the passengers` identity cards.

    Eleven media representatives were requested to leave and, after a 90-minute delay, the pilgrims turned back in a gesture of protest.

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs Markos Kyprianou will visit Athens on Thursday, September 3rd, for talks with his Greek counterpart Dora Bakoyannis.

    Kyprianou will travel to Greece Wednesday evening from Paris, after accompanying President of the Republic, Demetris Christofias, on his visit to France.

    Within the framework of his visit to Athens, the Foreign Minister will be received by the President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias.

    During his meeting with Bakoyannis, Kyprianou will brief his counterpart on the course of the negotiations for the solution of the Cyprus problem in view of the beginning of the second round of the direct talks, an official statement said here Wednesday.
