Cyprus_greek-soldiersThe remains of six Greek soldiers who fell during the 1974 Turkish invasion in Cyprus and were until recently considered to be missing, will be handed over to Greece’s Alternate Minister of National Defense, Dimitris Vitsas, during a special ceremony that will be held on Monday, in Nicosia.
The remains, which were identified by DNA analysis, will be transferred to Athens on Tuesday, January 19, aboard a C-130 military aircraft carrier. Cypriot and Greek military leadership will also board the special flight.
Once landed at the Elefsina military airport, the remains will be received by the President of the Greek Parliament, the Defense Ministers of Cyprus and Greece, party representatives and relatives of those fallen in Cyprus or are still missing.
During his stay in Cyprus, Vitsas will also meet with President Nicos Anastasiades and Presidential Commissioner for Humanitarian Issues Fotis Fotiou.
Moreover, Cypriot Defense Minister Christoforos Fokaides, who will be in the Greek capital to attend the ceremony, will also have meetings with the leadership of the Greek Armed Forces and the President of the Greek Parliament.
