French President Macron Will Attend Greece’s 200th Independence Day

March 3, 2021

Russian President Vladimir Putin isn’t come but French President Emmanuel Macron and his spouse Brigitte will attend Greece’s annual celebrations on March 25 to mark 200 years of independence from the Ottoman Occupation.

Kathimerini had first reported it, now confirmed by another news site, adding to the luster of the day during the lingering COVID-19 pandemic although it hasn’t been said what other events will be attached to the day during health restrictions.

But with the anniversary coming on the first day of a two-day European Council meeting of leaders of the European Union’s 27 member states, Macron won’t stay long, making a stopover for a celebration before flying to Brussels.

Kathimerini had first reported on October 16, 2020, that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had invited Macron, Putin and Prince Charles to the celebrations, as representatives of the countries that fought against and pushed out the Ottoman Navy in the defining Battle of Navarino on October 20 in 1827.
