Greek President Pavlopoulos meets with visiting Israeli FM Katz

Greek President Prokopios Pavlopoulos and Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz confirmed the excellent relations between the two countries during a meeting on Thursday, particularly the trilateral collaboration of Greece, Israel and Cyprus.
Katz said Greece and Israel share the common goal of stability in the region, and noted that Iran and Turkey are undermining that. He also noted the rise of antisemitism in Europe and thanked Greece for its contributions to fight this trend, and for assuming the presidency of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
The Israeli minister also thanked Pavlopoulos for planning to visit Israel in 2020, during the commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz with the assistance of Russia, and revealed that his mother was among those freed from the concentration camp.
Pavlopoulos responded that it is a great honor and the fulfilment of an obligation to attend the events, adding he was very moved to attend the inauguration of the renovated Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki.
During his official visit to Greece, Katz also met separately with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias.
