“Eleftherios Vanizelos envisioned great Greece, not just in size and population, but in prestige and as a model power internationally. [He envisioned] Greece with a multifaceted foreign policy worthy of its emblematic history and destined to play an equally historic role for the future,” Mr. Pavlopoulos said.

Venizelos served several times as Prime Minister in the beginning of the 20th century.
