President Pavlopoulos: The democratic forces must demonstrate “absolute unity” on national goals

President Prokopis Pavlopoulos stated on Sunday from Tripolis in the Peloponnese that Greece’s course toward the future demands the absolute unity of all the democratic political forces in support of major national goals. “One of those goals – and perhaps the most important today – is the country’s European prospect,” he said.

Mr. Pavlopoulos visited Tripolis at the 196th anniversary since the Greek forces besieged and captured Tripolis from the Ottoman Turks.

The president made a reference to Turkey saying that “the past must not divide us with our friend and neighbour Turkey but teach us the value of peace and peaceful coexistence. In this context Greece supports Turkey’s European prospects on condition that Turkey fully respects international and European law, thus respecting the borders, territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Greece, and as a consequence the borders, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the European Union.”
