March 17, 2020

ATHENS – President of Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Tuesday concluded a visit to the defence ministry, during which she was briefed on issues relating to Greece’s armed forces by the Hellenic National Defence General Staff, in the presence of the ministry’s political and military leadership.

After the briefing, Sakellaropoulou spoke via video call with emergency unit leader Lieutenant Elisavet Nioti at the border post in Kastanies, who briefed her on the results of the deterrent actions taken to date, underlining the determination of the armed forces to succeed in their mission.

The President expressed her full support and her thanks for the work of the military forces operating in the region to intercept the illegal entrance of migrants and refugees into Greece.

Sakellaropoulou also proposed to Defence Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos that they visit the region together. It was decided that this should be postponed until later, as soon as conditions allow.
