South Australia Premier Rann:
Macedonia is as Greek as the Acropolis

(ANA/MPA)--South Australia Premier Mike Rann stressed that "Macedonia is as Greek as the Acropolis," during a meeting in Thessaloniki on the weekend with Macedonia-Thrace Minister George Kalantzis.

"For all of us who love History, and know History, Macedonia is as Greek as the Acropolis," said Rann, who on Sunday was presented with the Municipality of Thessaloniki's highest distinction, the Gold Medal of the City, by mayor Vassilis Papageorgopoulos at an official ceremony. The medal was bestowed on Rann, by unanimous decision of the City Council, in recognition of his contribution to Greece and the promotion of Greece's national issues.
