Foreign minister tells American Jewish Committee forum ‘Greece will never allow hate to grow’

 

“Greece will never allow hate to grow and spread,” Foreign Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos told the American Jewish Committee Global Forum in Washington on Monday, at which he was a keynote speaker.

“Because of its economic problems, Greece is facing serious social challenges that have bred political forces that disgrace our democratic and humanistic traditions,” Avramopoulos said.

“Let me state from this forum, in the most determined and compelling manner, that Greece will never allow hate to grow and spread. Hate will be confronted and stopped,” he added.
