The President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Papoulias, will be spending the Epiphany festivities on Agathonisi, attending mass and the traditional dunking of the cross in the sea. This visit is of a greater significance as recently tensions between Greece and Turkey arise, after Turkey has gone on a rampage of the Greek airspace violations, sending airplanes to play push-and-shove over the small inhabited Dodecanese islands of Agathonisi and Farmakonisi.
