Greek President thanks Austrian volunteer firefighters



Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou expressed the country’s appreciation for the help Austrian volunteer firefighters and other volunteers provided with the multiple fires in Greece, on Monday.


Sakellaropoulou is in Austria to attend the European Alpbach Forum and met at Innsbruck with a group of volunteer firefighters.


She told them that she had wanted to host the representatives of all firefighters who came from other countries to help, but that was not possible because they had to return to their countries. “It is a great joy to have the opportunity to meet you here and express to you and the rest of the volunteers the gratitude of all Greeks for your contributions,” she said.


At the Forum, she also met with the governor of the Federated State of Tyrol, Günther Platter. [amna]
