In a message marking the 192nd anniversary of the March 25 Greek national Independence Day, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said yesterday: “Freedom means to wage, united, the war against the tribulations we face, our enemies that have designs against us, and our own bad self, far removed from divisive slogans, the fatalism of subjugation and from national inferiority complexes.”
Samaras called this year’s anniversary a “day of historic memory, in days of national tribulation, for all of Hellenism and today, especially, for Cyprus”.
He added, “it suffices for us to look back at our entire contemporary history to realise how many tribulations we have gone through, always in a painful way, but always with success… we always emerged stronger as a nation, better as a society, and prouder for what we are, more certain of what we can achieve. Provided that we remain united and standing,” Samaras continued, AMNA reports. “The Greeks can accomplish everything if they remain united and standing,” the Premier stressed.
