President of the Hellenic Republic Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos Plants a tree at KKL-JNF Grove of Nations


His Excellency the President of the Hellenic Republic Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos planted an olive tree at KKL-JNF Grove of Nations Forest today, Wednesday, March 30th, 2016.


Mr. Pavlopoulos is the 83rd head of state to plant a tree in the Grove of Nations, where presidents and prime ministers plant a tree as a sign of friendship with the State of Israel and the Jewish people and as a symbol of hope for peace between all the nations of the world.


President Pavlopoulos' current visit to Israel is in celebration of 25 years of bi-lateral relations between Israel and Greece, which stem from the ancient bonds of the two countries' history, academia and culture, as well as shared goals for economic stability and regional security.


Greece provided Israel with aid and assistance during the December 2010 forest fire which devastated the northern Carmel forest. Greek planes were among the first to come help Israel put out the raging fire, sending aircrafts with technicians, firefighters and equipment to Ramat David Airbase.


President Pavlopoulos is well known for his support of the Greek Jewish community. His visit marks the third Presidential visit from Greece since full diplomatic relations were established.
