Greek President expresses support for Greek diaspora and American Archbishop Elpidophoros


Newly elected President of Greece Katerina Sakellaropoulou expressed her support for the Greek diaspora and the Archbishop Elpidophoros of America in a tweet on Friday morning.

The president also expressed gratitude towards her followers on social media, as she was able to express the importance of the American Archbishops initiative to all members of the faithful.

“I expressed my support for the expatriates who are being severely tested by the pandemic,” Sakellaropoulou says in her tweet.

Like Australia, Holy Week services conducted in the USA will be broadcast via TV and the Internet. The American Archbishop asked the President to convey his personal congratulations to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for implementing effective polices that have helped Greece flatten the curve.

Mitsotakis on Tuesday also sent a message of support to all diaspora Greeks, giving extended sympathies to COVID-19 victims in the United States.

“We have won the first battle. And every day we are winning the second one. Through the government’s bold and swift decisions. Through the mobilisation of the state. And with the responsible behaviour of all citizens, in cities and villages,” he underlined, adding that his thoughts are with the Greeks, wherever they may be, and especially with those living in the USA.

Mitsotakis called on Greeks abroad to abide by social distancing and sanitation measures, which has been proven to contain the spread of the deadly virus.
