On his part, Adams noted that New York is the Athens of America because both cities believe in the values of democracy, eradicating social inequalities as well as in the protection of the environment to ensure a better quality of life for their inhabitants. The aim should be for the two cities to work together to solve the same problems and become model cities for whole world,” the New York mayor said.

Adams is in Athens for the World Summit of Mayors against Anti-Semitism that is co-organised by the Municipality of Athens, the organisation Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) and the Centre for Jewish Impact in cooperation with the Jewish Federations of North America.
