“On behalf of the government and people of Zimbabwe and indeed on my own behalf, I extend to you and through you to the government and the people of Greece, our warm congratulations on this joyous occassion of your National Day of the Hellenic Republic, as you celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Greek revolution,” read the statement.

The Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution was a successful war of independence and decolonisation waged by Greek revolutionaries against the Ottoman Empire between 1821 and 1830. The war led to the formation of modern Greece. The revolution is celebrated by Greeks around the world as independence day on 25 March.
