ΑΣΤΡΟS — President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Friday visited the area of Astros in the municipality of North Kynouria, on the occasion of the celebration of the 198th Anniversary of the Second National Assembly.

Sakellaropoulou also laid a wreath at the site of the Second National Assembly, stressing that today is a great day of honour and remembrance for Astros and its contribution to the Revolution of 1821. "The Second National Assembly, in April 1823, solemnly proclaimed the faith of the Greeks in independence and the continuation of the Struggle with every sacrifice," she underlined.

The President reminded that "the new Constitution confirmed the unwavering commitment to the high ideals of freedom and equality. Freedom of the press was guaranteed and slavery was abolished."

Concluding, she stressed that "two hundred years later, our return to the first moments of the Greek State, recalls to all of us the fundamental values of our coexistence."
