House Speaker Annita Demetriou begins an official visit to Athens on Sunday, following an invitation by Constantinos Tasoulas, the President of the Greek Parliament. This is the first official visit of Demetriou to Athens after she assumed duties during which she will hold contacts with the political and religious leadership.

A press statement by the Parliament says that Demetriou will be received by Greece's President Katerina Sakellaropoulou and Premier Kyriakos Mitsotakis as well as her counterpart who will host an official lunch in her honour.

House President will also meet with Archbishop of Athens Ieronymos, the leaders of the political leaders, FM Nikos Dendias and Athens mayor Costas Bakoyiannis. Demetriou will meet with a delegation of the Greek relatives of missing persons in Cyprus.

The House Speaker will offer a part of the money that was supposed to be used for the purchase of gifts for her hosts to the Greek organisation "Elpida" (Hope) for children with cancer and to shelters for abused women.

The money will be given from Demetriou to the Head of "Elpida" Marianna Vardinoyiannis and Deputy Minister Maria Syreggela during meetings with them.

She returns to Cyprus on October 13.
