Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis chaired a Government Council for National Security (KYSEA) meeting on Friday at the Maximos Mansion. The meeting focused on the appointment of a new chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff and the new heads of the Hellenic Army General Staff, the Hellenic Navy General Staff and the Hellenic Air Force General Staff.

– Chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff: Lieutenant General Dimitrios Houpis
– Chief of the Hellenic Army General Staff: Lieutenant General Georgios Kostidis
– Chief of the Hellenic Navy General Staff: Vice Αdmiral Dimitrios-Evangelos Kataras
