Greek President Visits the Parliament of Lithuania

ΑΤΗΕΝS – President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Thursday addressed a plenary session of the Parliament of Lithuania, during her official visit to the Baltic country. Sakellaropoulou was welcomed by Parliament President Viktorija Čmilytė-Nielsen.

In her speech, Sakellaropoulou thanked the parliament president for the warm welcome and expressed her joy that she is meeting a woman in the position of parliament president, while noting that “the assumption of positions by women is – although much remains to be done – a very positive development for politics and society itself.”

She also noted that her visit seals the harmonious relations and good cooperation between the two countries in a period of extreme tension and multiple challenges, which test the post-war acquis in Europe and around the world.

“Crises and events, often unpredictable, disrupt the normality of all aspects of our modern way of life and cause general insecurity. This creates a new situation, both for the states and for the supranational organisations, which are faced with the need for immediate and effective cooperation to solve problems that, as it turns out, transcend national borders,” said the President of the Republic.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
