President Urges 'Globalisation of Humanism and Democracy,' from Florina

The only globalisation that had any real meaning in our times was not economic but a globalisation of humanism and democracy, President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Sunday. Addressing a seminar on the refugee crisis held in Florina, he said this could be interpreted in two ways but also had dual lessons for Greeks regarding their response to the refugee problem.
"I say we Greeks teach and will always teach because we have proved that there is no obstacle, in spite of the crisis, to doing our duty based on our ancient heritage. We must never forget that the concept of the refugee originates in ancient Greece. He is the supplicant. Only Greek culture has succeeded in creating such an institution...When today, during the crisis, we treat them as we Greeks treat them, we are doing nothing other than demonstrating the continuity of our people, our nation, through our ancient heritage and present actions," he said.
