April 18, 2020

ATHENS – “There’s nothing more special than a Greek Easter. Last year, I was in #Kerkyra, where I narrowly escaped the falling μπότηδες”, posted US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt in his twitter account on Friday

“The year before, I was in #Crete, with its amazing flavors and the solemn #Epitaphios of Panagia Trimartiri. This year at home but happy to be in Greece with its warm, generous & talented people” the US envoy said.

Replying to US Ambassador, Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias posted “Dear Ambassador Let’s hope next year we can be there together!!”
