In the context of celebrations in honour of the 200th anniversary of the launch of the Greek Revolution, the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, in collaboration with the Hellenic Embassy in Cyprus and the Greek Foreign Ministry’s Service of Diplomatic and Historical Archives, organizes the exhibition titled “Greece Liberated: Recognition and Establishment of Diplomatic and Consular Relations”.

 

Achieving the independence of Greece was not only a question of victories in the battlefield. Gaining recognition by other nations and forging diplomatic and consular relations with them were equally necessary for the establishment of a truly independent country. The exhibition features documents from the collection of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Service of Diplomatic and Historical Archives, which demonstrate the path toward the recognition of the new Greek state during the Struggle and in the years that followed it, as well as the establishment of diplomatic and consular relations with other states and the overall creation of a consular network. The documents on display span the period until 1840.

 

Complementary actions planned in the framework of the exhibition will be announced soon.
