'Did you get attacked by a thief?', a student asked the President

What he said in response

The President of the Republic, Nicos Christodoulides, paid a visit to the "Pefkios Georgiades" Primary School in Strovolos today, accompanied by the Minister of Education, Sports, and Youth, Athena Michaelides, the Government Spokesperson, Constantinos Letibiotis, and the Deputy Government Spokesperson, Doxa Komodromou.

The President of the Republic told the students at a gathering held at the school: "Tell me what bothers you the most, and what you would like to see changed at school. Don't think about not saying anything; instead, speak without hesitation. Tell me everything, let's talk, and I'll listen to you. You are our country's future, and whatever decisions we make as a government, particularly those of us who will be in office for the next five years will have an impact on your future. This is why I'd like to talk about it."

Christodoulides then fielded numerous questions from the students. When one of them asked the President if he had ever been robbed or attacked, Mr. Christodoulides responded, "no, do I need to worry, do you know something, do you have any information?" The attendees burst out laughing. The boy then wanted to reassure the President that he didn't have to worry because there were so many police officers surrounding him to protect him.
