  • [01] President Pavlopoulos receives New Zealand Governor General

    President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Tuesday received New Zealand Governor General Sir Jerry Mateparae, who is visiting Greece to attend celebrations marking the 75th anniversary since the Battle of Crete.

    Meeting the Governor General, President Pavlopoulos underlined that Greeks will never forget the huge contribution that New Zealanders made at the Battle of Crete, where 671 fell in battle and 2,000 were taken prisoner out of a total of 7,700 that fought in the battle. The Battle of Crete was significant on a European and global level, Pavlopoulos added, helping to more quickly end Nazi atrocities and barbarity.

    Mateparae was accompanied by New Zealand's Education Minister Hekia Parata, whose grandfather had fought in the Battle of Crete and referred to further enhancing the friendly ties between Greece and New Zealand. Attending on the Greek side was Alternate Development Minister for Tourism Elena Kountoura.
