Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, who is visiting the Lake in Evia, that has suffered severe damages from a recent fire, sent a strong message of unity on Friday.
“This place teaches us a lot. The people here express optimism and determination,” he underlined and added: “You are teaching us how to deal with a deep crisis, which is likely to cause a rupture in the social fabric.”
“And we can deal with it provided that we are united,” Pavlopoulos said.
“We should not however underestimate the individual differences of the democratic forces. We need to recognize and respect them. But there is no excuse before important issues; we should all be united,” he stressed.
