..Federal, State and Local government representatives, as well as the Ambassador, Consulat and Greek and Cypriot Diplomatic Officials.
While the President of the Hellenic Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos has also sent a message to the Greek diaspora marking the occasion of the National Day of Greece.
“We celebrate, with due respect and due splendor, Greece in 1821, which constituted the “Resurrection” of our people, as it led to the abolition of the long-suffering enslavement of our Ancestors in the Ottoman and the creation of Greece.
Then, as always in their heroic and centuries-long history, the Greeks emerged and ignored the aristocratic prowess of the conquerors and revolted to regain their Freedom, which is, as I have repeatedly stressed, an existential authority and hence a way of life for our nation and our people,” says the President.
