Conservative opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday voiced his confidence in the ability of the country’s armed forces to safeguard Greece’s national security.

“At a time of heightened tension in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Greek armed forces are the absolute guarantee of national sovereignty and national independence,” the New Democracy leader said during a visit at a military facility in Larissa, central Greece.

“Greece will always respond to challenges with stability as well as full confidence,” he said.

Mitsotakis’ visit was part of a pre-election tour in Greece’s Thessaly region.
