In a message on Twitter Thursday, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis paid tribute to Thanos Axarlian, a 20-year-old student killed during a botched assassination attempt by the now defunct November 17 terrorist group on July 14, 1992.
Axarlian was killed during a rocket attack against then economy minister Yiannis Paleokrassas.
“His memory is our responsibility. And his smile [is] our strength against the enemies of life, of unity and of progress,” Mitsotakis wrote.
Η μνήμη του γίνεται η ευθύνη μας. Και το χαμόγελό του, η δύναμή μας απέναντι στους εχθρούς της ζωής, της ενότητας και της προόδου. pic.twitter.com/skYx8sG2Hk
