President Pavlopoulos: EU would not be worthy of its name without Greece

“Greece cannot think of its future outside the European Union, having definitively and irrevocably decided that its course is only within the hard core of the EU and the eurozone; so the Family of European Peoples would never be complete and worthy of its name and its cultural heritage without Greece, as a permanent and integral member,” Greek President Prokopios Pavlopoulos said on Sunday during his speech at the ceremony for his proclamation as an Honorable Citizen of Milos.

Pavlopoulos also pointed out that “the history of Milos documents, in an unprecedented way, the multi-year connection of the ancient Greek culture with Christianity in our country, constituting a strong proof of Greece’s undeniable European identity.”
