Greece's Culture Minister Myrsini Zorba issued a statement today, Tuesday, expressing her deep sorrow for the catastrophe of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris and said her government will support the restoration efforts of the historical Cathedral.

''When we see a monument being destroyed in front of our eyes, a historical monument for Paris, we feel like we are losing something from our lives...The life of the monument is linked with the life and the history of a place'' said Zorba.

The Minister also stressed the importance of being on alert regarding the protection of Greece's own monuments.

"The feeling that something may suddenly happen in a monument must make us understand the importance of a better planning for the protection of the monuments.''
