Mr. President (Barack Obama), we urge you from here, from Athens, with its eternal, simple Parthenon -- the Parthenon of democracy and civilization -- to continue to serve the same ideals after the end of your term. Your appeal will continue into the future. In this future and very promising journey, we would like you to take Greece along. At this point, I’d like to remember the words of the poet Odysseas Elytis: Please do not forget our country. -- Greece President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, State dinner with President Obama, 15 November 2016Posted by Isabelle le 2016-11-26
