Ministry of Foreign Affairs announcement on the deadly wildfires in Attica (24 July 2018)

Tuesday, 24 July 2018

We express our sincere gratitude to the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Turkey, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, and fYROM, Nikola Dimitrov, for their immediate response in offering aircraft to help extinguish the deadly wildfires in Attica. We also thank Cyprus, Israel, Spain and the European Commission for offering assistance –material and personnel– and thank all of our friends and partners who have expressed their solidarity with and support for the Greek people in these difficult hours.

The immediacy with which this assistance was offered demonstrates that the spirit of sincere cooperation and solidarity, like natural disasters, knows no borders and overcomes all differences.
