A national memorial liturgy and a memorial event were held in New York to mark the 45th anniversary since the 1974 coup d’ etat and Turkish invasion of Cyprus, which resulted in the occupation of the island’s northern third.
 
The memorial liturgy was held in Port Washington and was attended by the diplomatic missions of Cyprus and Greece in New York, the leadership of the Cypriot community and others.
 
Speaking at the event, Cyprus’ Consul General Alexis Phedonos referred to the victims of the Turkish invasion and those who lost their lives since 1974 protesting against the occupation.
