Message by Greek President on Greek Independence Day
The President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos has issued a message on the occasion of the Greek Independence Day, celebrated across Greece and by the Greeks abroad on 25th March.
"All the Greeks governed by the ideals of Democracy must now, more than ever, put aside whatever differences and hold a united front of common responsibility in order to successfully confront the great challenges of our times and ensure a better future for Greece and the future generations of the Greeks, to which we must pass down a future of hope and creativity, and not our own mistakes," Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said last week in his message for the March 25 national holiday.
Pavlopoulos pointed out that "the example of our ancestors who fought for independence in 1821 should inspire us and guide us in perpetuity and especially during the current critical times for our country".
"Apart from the deep economic and social problems, Greece is also facing the consequences of an unprecedented refugee inflow, because of its geographical position in the EUís external borders", he said.
Referring to the refugee issue, he stated that it will be resolved effectively only if the war in Syria ends once and for all.
