The circles of history seem to be ironic to people’s stories, he said. Today we are called upon to take stock of Greece in the broader context of the modern world. Then it was called birth, now it is a rebirth.
I expect that the 200 years since the Greek Revolution will be linked to the years ahead,” Kyriakos Mitsotakis said.
“200 years since the Greek Revolution of 1821 and the establishment of the modern Greek state is a milestone for all the Greeks, either man or woman, said the President of the Greece 2021 Committee,” Gianna Angelopoulou Daskalaki.
“It is an opportunity to build the future and to take stock of Greece in the broader context of the modern world,” she added.
