Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos, who was on the island Thursday, paid tribute to the fallen soldiers and to Greek soldiers who "continue the tradition and assure the Greek people, the Greek nation, whether here in Cyprus or in the motherland, that the armed forces are ready to tackle any threat."
