Sakellaropoulou: The Thracians Are Guarding the Greek and the European Borders

ALEXANDROUPOLIS — The Thracians are selflessly guarding the Greek and the European borders and the city of Alexandroupolis is a growth hub for the wider region, President of the Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Friday from Alexandroupolis where she attended the events for the 101st anniversary from the city's liberation.

Sakellaropoulou laid a wreath at the Monument of Domna Visvizi and stated to the press: "On May 14, 1920, both the cities of Alexandroupolis and Komotini were liberated and integrated to Greece. 200 years after the Greek Revolution and 101 years after the integration we are celebrating the anniversary in Alexandroupolis for a second consecutive year unfortunately in conditions of health crisis. We hope that this year will be the last as the strict observation of the vaccination programme guarantees the return to normality".

Defence Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos represented the government in the commemoration events.
