October 10, 2021

ATHENS — Τhe head of the Greek Delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Ambassador Christodoulos Lazaris on Sunday in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) stressed the importance of assuming the presidency of the alliance.

Lazaris gave the interview in the framework of the Athens Democracy Forum.

He underlined that Greece, taking over the presidency of the IHRA, wanted to give a strong presence in the struggle of democratic societies and states, who, like itself, oppose to the return of extremist ideologies and seek to drastically reduce their influence, especially among the younger generations.

In addition, Lazaris pointed out that Greece has been extending a hand of friendship to the Israeli world, to Israel and to the Jewish Diaspora, with which so many things have connected us, since ancient times.

Referring to the targets of the Greek presidency, he stated that "our purpose is to be, not just a part, but a protagonist, in another effort, which unites all the great democracies of the world" and outlined the initiatives and actions taken during first half of the term and those scheduled for the next term.
