I address you our most heartfelt condolences for the passing of Mr. Ouranios Ioannides.

Former President Ioannides was always a supporter of the Mediterranean Games, in particular and of sport, in general. The Family of the Mediterranean Games loses one of its most valued collaborators and, even though he was not active lately among us, he will be deeply missed.

I kindly ask you to convey to his family our feelings of profound compassion for this loss.
