Sakellaropoulou: We Must Fight for the End of the Turkish Occupation

September 22, 2020

NICOSIA — "Let us fight with unshakable faith and perseverance for the end of the Turkish occupation and the reunification of Cyprus," President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Tuesday from Cyprus.

During the second day of her official visit, Sakellaropoulou visited the Imprisoned Monuments and the Tomb of Makedonitissa. Upon her arrival at the Imprisoned Monuments, she was welcomed by the Minister of Justice and Public Order of Cyprus, Emily Giolitis. This was followed by a hymn, the laying of a wreath and a guided tour of the area.

"Today we are deeply saddened and we honor the heroes who fell for the freedom of Cyprus. The least debt to their memory is to fight with unshakable faith and perseverance for the end of the Turkish occupation and the reunification of Cyprus," she stated.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
