Criticism of the government because, as he said, it did not support the resolution of the United Nations Organization for a humanitarian truce in the Middle East, the president exercised PASOK-KINAL Nikos Androulakisimmediately after the parade in Thessaloniki.

The epic of the 1940s fills every Greek woman and man with pride. We honor our ancestors, our heroes who wrote with their blood one of the most glorious pages in the history of the Greek people against the Italian conqueror. We will never forget them“, stated Mr. Androulakis and continued:

As we must not forget, what the Greek people can achieve with unity, with faith. What can the Greek people achieve when they fight for high ideals and for the homeland. However, today I cannot help but refer to something that I consider unthinkable. Greece is a country that always stands on the right side of history, of respect for international law, of humanity. I find it inconceivable that yesterday our government did not support the United Nations resolution for a humanitarian truce in the Middle East. Humanity should not enter into any geopolitical scale. This was the attitude of the Greek people. This should also be the attitude of the government and our country on such top issues, which concern the stability and well-being of the peoples of the wider region».
