His Excellency, Ambassador Nicholas Emiliou, gave a salutation and his wishes on the New Year. His Grace wished to the Permanent Representative and the members of the Representation, that Our Lord may bestow upon them His Grace and Blessing, and that our semi-occupied fatherland may see its liberation from the yoke of the Turkish military occupation.
