President Sakellaropoulou Marks Greek Armed Forces Day 2020

ATHENS – Greek Armed Forces Day 2020 is commemorated amid a rather difficult predicament, said President Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Saturday.

Celebrated annually on November 21, Greek Armed Forces Day 2020 "finds the country facing increased aggression by Turkey," said the President and expressed her concern for "the men and women of the country's armed forces, who are on stand-by for months without even the slightest pause for a meeting with loved ones and family, exhibiting self-denial and exemplary patriotic ethos."

"I would like to thank them all, on behalf of all Greeks, and want to assure them that we are always standing by them, not only in thoughts, but also in practice," said the President. 

The readiness of the Greek armed forces' personnel to repel any threat deserves the respect and gratitude of all Greeks, she stressed.

Sakellaropoulou laid a wreath at the monument of the Unknown Soldier, at the parliament's forecourt, before receiving the Heads of Greece's Armed Forces at the Presidential mansion.
