ATHENS – Fifty-three years after Greece was put in jail, “democracy remembers and learns from experience,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday, on the anniversary of the takeover by the military junta (1967-1974).

In a social media post, the premier said that democracy “is being better shielded and stronger, building at its core a relationship of trust with citizens.” The day, he said, “does not lend itself to great proclamations – it requires unity and truth.”

In a photograph of himself in his office, Mitsotakis added, “We honor resistance to the dictatorship, making our democracy better.”
