    Cyprus honours those killed in 1974 to defend the Republic

    Nicosia, Jul 15 (CNA) -- Cyprus remembers and pays tribute today to all those who lost their life in defence of the Republic during the 1974 military coup against the democratically elected President of Cyprus.

    The military coup against President, 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 37 percent of the Republic's territory and its de facto division.

    The wailing of sirens was heard at 8.20 local time, the very time when the coup occurred.

    A church service for those killed during the coup was held this morning at Saints Constantinos and Elenis Church in Nicosia, in the presence of Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides. House President Demetris Christofias addressed the ceremony.

    Wreaths were laid at the tombs of those killed defending the Republic.

    The 56-seat House of Representatives will have a special sesion this morning to denounce the coup and the Turkish invasion and honour those who sacrificed their life for democracy and for defending their country.

    Nicosia, Jul 15 (CNA) -- Cyprus House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias has said that the political crisis in Turkey is "another negative development" with an uncertain impact on Turkey's stance regarding the Cyprus problem and Cyprus' European accession course.

    Christofias, speaking here today at a church service for those killed during the July 15, 1974 military coup while defending the democratically elected President, Archbishop Makarios, said all political parties in Cyprus should assess the situation and act collectively, in order to prevent negative developments and to pave the way for positive ones.

    "We must unwaveringly support and promote a solution based on a bicommunal, bizonal federation," Christofias said.
