The Greek President 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 realize what Greeks have achieved so far, but also an inspiration for creating the desired future for the country.
