    He noted that World Poetry Day is celebrated every year on March 21, the official first day of spring. ” With all that is happening around us, the celebration of poetry serves as a reminder that, as a medium of expression, it is there by our side in every unpleasant or pleasant moment of our lives, to tame our souls, to seduce us into the melody of words and to lead our souls on journeys in the sea of ​​fantasy and truth” he said.

    He emphasized that “this year marks 50 years of waiting for a solution to the Cyprus problem and a return to our ancestral lands. The Deputy Ministry of Culture recognizes the importance of the work you carry out as the Union of Displaced Communities of Famagusta and in particular for the promotion of culture, which is the means to preserve our heritage, tradition and identity.
