Ministry summons diplomat to protest Syria slaughter

The Foreign Ministry on Tuesday summoned Syrian Ambassador Huda al-Homsi to express ?disgust and the strict condemnation of Greece? at the recent slaughter of more than 100 people in the town of Houla, near Syria?s third-largest city of Homs.

The ministry?s general director for political affairs, Panayiotis Zografos, summoned the country?s ambassador and called on the regime of President Bashar al-Assad to stop the use of violence, the ministry said on its website.

Several countries including the US, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Spain expelled Syrian diplomats from their capitals yesterday in protest at the slaughter.
