The archbishop replied that Greek-Cypriots would light to' the death for the "freedom and integrity of the country." The Creek prime minister has not switched sldes; he also said that Greece would defend Cyprus If Turkey invaded , but ha made the first suggestion from official 'quarers in Athens that Greek and Greek- Cypriot interests may not always be identical.
