‘We must all protect Cyprus,’ Kotzias says, attending Nicosia’s parade for March 25

Representing Greece at the Nicosia schools and veterans parade marking the March 25 anniversary of the 1821 Greek revolution against Ottoman rule, Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias on Saturday said that he deeply moved to be there.

Cyprus is “emotion, love and hope,” the Greek foreign minister said, adding that “we must all protect Cyprus, support and embrace its people.”

“Together we can solve the problems that exist,” Kotzias said.

Also among the officials that attended the parade before the Greek Embassy in Nicosia were Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides, Cyprus Archbishop Chrysostomos, the Greek ambassador in Nicosia and Cyprus’ political and military leadership.
