  • [01] American Jewish Organisations

    President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias met on Wednesday with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organisations (CoP) and urged them to support Greece's effort and take advantage of the new developments being created in the country and the wider region.

    He also expressed optimism over the widening of cooperation and the strengthening of relations between Greece and Israel.

    "Take with you on leaving Greece the image of a country that is toiling to overcome the current economic crisis and of a hospitable place that is being modernised and can constitute a point of reference for various personal and collective creative activities," he said.

    President Papoulias assured that Greece does not tolerate cases of anti-Semitism and intolerance and referred to the countryÔs efforts for peace in the region, criticising the stance of Turkey and its non-compliance with the principles of the EU.

    "Greece shall not tolerate a fictitious accession process in which Turkey will be taking gradually from the EU all that it wants, without the fulfillment of its obligations towards the EU," he said.
