Sakellaropoulou Urges Greek-American Students to Promote Greece’s Spirit in the US

ATHENS — "We expect you to promote the spirit of Greece in such a strong democracy in the world as the United States and to be the best ambassadors, strengthening the Greek-American friendship and the excellent relations between the two countries," President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Tuesday, receiving a delegation of Greek-American students visiting Greece as part of the 13th annual educational visit organised by the "American Hellenic Institute Foundation".

Sakellaropoulou underlined that their visit to Greece this year coincides with the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution that led to the foundation of the modern Greek state and she stressed that it was an opportunity to realise what Greeks have achieved so far, but also an inspiration for creating the desired future for the country.

"We expect you to promote the spirit of Greece in such a strong democracy worldwide, as the USA, which was largely inspired by the democracy born in our country," she stated.

"The main and steadfast carrier of this great heritage is you, the numerous and active Greek community, especially its young people. I am sure that, returning to the USA, you will be the best ambassadors of Greece, strengthening the Greek-American friendship and the excellent relations between the two countries," she added.
