On Friday, September 12, the greek foreign ministry had responded positively to the “creation of a global alliance of States”, to coordinate the actions against the Islamic State, the activity of which “has caused the outrage and the unanimous condemnation of the entire civilized world”.
The announcement of the greek Foreign ministry stressed the “political support” of Athens in this international initiative, together with its “solidarity” to the Iraqi government, Christians, ethnic and religious communities in the region, which “suffered badly” from the primitive and barbaric actions of the so-called “Islamic Caliphate”, an extreme jihadist organization, which must be eliminated”.
