The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) on Wednesday celebrated the 66th anniversary since its foundation and the 65th anniversary of its presence in Greece, with an event at the Athens Concert Hall under the aegis of President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos.

Addressing the event, Pavlopoulos said that 2017 will be a “crucial year” for Europe’s future, in which many Europeans would be asked to demonstrate through national elections “what exactly it is that they want from Europe.”

“[We must show]…what we mean by Europe and we must be prepared to defend its identity,” he added.
