Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis hailed the legacy of former French President Jacques Chirac who died Thursday at 86.

In a tweet, written in French, the Greek leader said Chirac had left “an indelible mark on his country and the Continent.”

Praising him as an “erudite man and a great connoisseur of the classics” and expressing “sadness” at his death, Mitsotakis said the late French statesman had “always stood on the side of Greece and the Greeks.”
