Patriarch Theodoros awards Grand Cross of St. Mark medal to Greek president

President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos, currently on a visit to Egypt, on Tuesday met with Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa Theodoros II, who presented him with a Grand Cross of the Order of St. Mark medal.

The Greek president also visited the former home, now turned into a museum, of the Greek poet Constantine Cavafy, noting that his poetry can act as a guide toward national self-awareness for Greeks and especially those burdened with the responsibility of governing the country, especially during these difficult times.
