Unexpected gift to Australian PM from Cyprus
Συντάχθηκε απο τον/την Θεόφιλος Δουμάνης   

A few weeks ago, an unexpected package arrived at the office of Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd from the community head of the Cypriot town of Oroklini, Spyros Elenodoros. The gift was offered, on behalf of Elenodoros, by the president of the Federation Cypriot Communities in Australia, Michalis Christodoulou, who is also originally from the village. 

According to Christodoulou, the gift was a copy of an old Bible, which is at Mount Athos and is written in Greek. A self-professed Christian, the Australian prime minister reads the Bible in Greek said the Cypriot-Australian official. But just in case of any difficulties, Christodoulou also gave Rudd  a Greek-English dictionary of the Bible, written in 1906. The Australian leader has sent a warm letter of thanks to the Cypriot-Australian community.
