Addressing the event, Navy General Staff chief Vice-Admiral Dimitris Elefsiniotis assured of the Navy's preparedness to meet the nation's expectations.

Venizelos, in turn, noted that Greece is a seafaring nation and maritime power, adding that great significance is placed on the armament, preparedness, training and morale of the Navy, which also supports Greece's merchant shipping that comprises one of the country's greatest comparative advantages.
