US Embassy Responds to Vandalism at Jewish Cemetery of Athens

ATHENS — The United States embassy in Athens condemned yesterday's vandalism revealed Tuesday at the Jewish Cemetery of Athens, quoting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying during his recent visit to Thessaloniki that anti-Semitism demands a response.

"The U.S. Embassy condemns the repugnant vandal attack and anti-Semitic graffiti found at the Jewish Cemetery of Athens. We stand together against voices of hate & intolerance. As Sec. Pompeo said in Thessaloniki, wherever we find anti-Semitism we have an obligation to respond," its tweet underlined.



Despite being unable to prevent smugglers in Turkey from sending refugees and migrants to Greek islands and the northern land border along the Evros River, Greece has made significant progress in dealing with human trafficking, according to a report by the Council of Europe's Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).
