“The Greek people will not forget how much you have contributed in order for Greece to remain in the Eurozone, during the crisis”, Mr. Pavlopoulos said addressing the German President, adding that the appreciation towards him was evident. He went on to say that Greece would uphlod its part of the agreement, provided its partners did the same. Mr. Pavlopoulos stressed the Greek people had made great sacrifices for the country to overcome the economic crisis.

“I would to like to assure you that Greece will overcome the crisis and remain in the EU and the Eurozone”, the Greek head of state said.
