Foreign minister tells American Jewish Committee forum 'Greece will never allow hate to grow'

"Greece will never allow hate to grow and spread," Foreign Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos told the American Jewish Committee Global Forum in Washington on Monday, at which he was a keynote speaker.

"Because of its economic problems, Greece is facing serious social challenges that have bred political forces that disgrace our democratic and humanistic traditions," Avramopoulos said.

"Let me state from this forum, in the most determined and compelling manner, that Greece will never allow hate to grow and spread. Hate will be confronted and stopped," he added.

"The social factors that have allowed this to happen, as in other European countries, must be successfully addressed. Ignorance, despair, anger, disillusionment with the political system are some of them. I am certain that as the crisis passes, the haters will pass too," Avramopoulos said.

On a different note, Avramopoulos also said that Greece "will continue the application of the necessary measures, structural reforms and privatizations." He said that this early stage - "the beginning of a long process of regenerating the Greek economy" - also provides opportunity "for investors who first spot the new trend and invest in the renewed prospects of our economy. Investors, who will, above all, appreciate the unique comparative advantages of our country."
