Successful searches for remains of Greek soldiers fallen during the war in Albania

The remains of two Greek soldiers have been found in Tepelena, marking a successful start of searches for those who fought and fell in Albania during World War II.

The search has taken place in Dragot, Tepelena, where the remains of two Greek soldiers fallen during World War II have been found.

The digging has led to the discovery of the remains of two other Greek soldiers.

Their nationality was ascertained through the identification number that they had on them and the medallions that were found. The Greek Foreign ministry and the embassy of Greece in Albania have released the news and the photographs from the digging.

The Greek Foreign ministry has considered the discovery of the remains of two soldiers as historical, while praising the work that has started today in this area.

“A historic moment, as the first disinterment of the remains of two Greek soldiers is taking place.
Two months after the meeting between the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Kotzias and his Albanian counterpart, Ditmir Bushati in Crete (10-12/11), the disinterment of the remains of Greek soldiers has started today, in an emotional atmosphere”, the statement says. /ibna/
