The President of the World Council of Hellenes Abroad, Mr. Stefanos P. Tamvakis, addressed a message to the publisher of Diaspora newspaper “Apogevmatini” in Istanbul, Mr. Michalis Vassileiadis, on the occasion of its 86th anniversary.
Full text message follows:
Dear Mr. Vassileiadis,
With great pleasure I read your respectable and dear to us all “Apogevmatini” newspaper, which has been staying in touch for decades, and on a daily basis, with the problems of Greeks in Istanbul and our Ecumenical Patriarchate.
The 86th anniversary of your newspaper, one of the most historical in the Greek Diaspora, but also in Turkey, makes us optimistic and responsible at the same time for the ongoing publication of your newspaper, sending its own message to Greeks Abroad.
I assure you that we will continue to support, with all our strength, your difficult, yet beautiful work.
With sincere respect and friendly regards,
Stefanos P. Tamvakis
Honorary President of the Greek Community of Alexandria
