President Sakellaropoulou Contacted by Moldovan Counterpart Maia Sandu

ATHENS — President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Friday spoke with her Moldovan counterpart Maia Sandu, who congratulated her on the 200-year anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821 and the foundation of the Greek state.

Sandu expressed a desire to further strengthen the good bilateral relations between Greece and Moldova, emphasising the constructive role played by the Moldovan community that lives in Greece. She also referred to the challenges faced by Moldova in fighting corruption. Finally, she asked for solidarity from European Union member-states in the face of the third wave of the pandemic in her country.

Sakellaropoulou thanked her and noted the historic bonds between the two countries. She agreed that there was room to boost and intensify the traditionally friendly relations between Greece and Moldova and wished Sandu success in her work, saying that her recent election to her country's highest office reflects the expectations of the Moldovan people for a better life, based on the values of democracy.

She shared Sandu's concern over the pandemic and expressed understanding over the problem with the supply of vaccines in Moldova, noting that vaccinations were the only solution for a return to a new normality.
