THESSALONIKI — US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, his wife Susan and members of his delegation to Greece paid a visit to the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki on Monday, accompanied by US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt and US General Consul in Thessaloniki Elizabeth Lee.

Local officials were also present, including the current and former mayors of Thessaloniki, where the Holocaust Museum of Greece is under construction.
