Academy of Athens makes Emmanuel Macron honorary member


During a meeting at the Academy of Athens last week, French President Emmanuel Macron was made an honorary member. 

The Academy said that the honour was presented to the President “for the inspired and substantial contribution of Mr Macron in the promotion and strengthening of European unification as well as for the multifaceted and important support of Greece and Cyprus.”

The Academy honoured that Macron had continued the long tradition of close cooperation between Greece and France. 

“President Macron offered and continues to offer decisive support to Greece to prevent actions that threaten national sovereignty and peace in general in the Eastern Mediterranean,” said the Academy.

“Both during the critical period of the summer of 2020 and later with the signing of the defence agreement between Greece and France in September 2021,” it continued.
