General News: President receives Battle of Crete veterans from New Zealand

President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Monday received a delegation of New Zealand veterans from the Battle of Crete, led by former Wellington Mayor Kerry Prendergast.
Addressing the veterans, Papoulias stressed that they were "heroes of a very important battle for Europe and the entire world" who had resisted at a time when Nazism seemed invincible.

He pointed out that Hitler's defeat at the Battle of Crete had cost him one of his most elite forces and had a direct impact on his immediate plans, such as taking Great Britain from the air.
