Greek Defense Min Accompanies PM Mitsotakis at Souda Base

October 28, 2020

CHANIA, Greece — The war of 1940 shows the way to deflect every threat and challenge against Greece's national sovereignty, National Defense Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos said on the October 28 anniversary.

Panagiotopoulos accompanied Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis at the naval base of Souda, where the premier was given a tour of the submarine "Katsonis", whose home port is at Crete.

Recalling the historic circumstances of 1940 with the Axis powers, the Defense minister said following the visit, "The enemy had more forces and was better equipped, but in the period that followed the Greek army crushed the enemy and achieved a proud military victory, a triumph. This happened because the Greek Armed Forces were prepared to defend the country's territorial integrity and enjoyed the absolute confidence of the united, determined and conscientious Greek people."
