“Greece, Cyprus and Israel have created a tripartite co-operation that promotes peace and stability in the South-Eastern Mediterranean,” said the Deputy Foreign Minister for Diaspora Greeks, Kostantinos Vlasis, after the conclusion of the trilateral consultations regarding the co-operation issues related to expatriates, which was held this morning in Athens.
Apart from the deputy minister, who represented the Greek side, the Presidential Commissioner for Humanitarian Affairs and Overseas Cypriots, Fotis Fotiou, and the Chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel, Isaac Herzog, were also present.
The deputy minister also said that co-operation between the three countries promotes friendship and brotherhood between peoples.
On the Israeli side, Isaac Herzog said that the co-operation has already produced significant results and he was impressed by Greece’s dynamic approach to diaspora issues.
He also stressed that the meeting discussed efforts to combat anti-semitism and, as he noted, there was a dangerous rise in hatred and especially hatred against Jews worldwide.
