Foreign Ministry spokesperson’s response to journalists’ questions regarding the demolition of the Holy Church of Saint Athanasios in Dhërmi, Himarë

Wednesday, 26 August 2015

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Konstantinos Koutras made the following statement in response to journalists’ questions regarding today’s demolition of the Holy Church of Saint Athanasios in Dhërmi, Himarë:

“The destruction of holy sites and objects of worship took place, at least until recently, in the wider region of the Middle East and North Africa, at the hands of jihadists. Today we also saw such an act carried out in our neighbouring country, Albania.

No one is more ungrateful than a beneficiary.

You will be informed directly of Greece’s moves in this instance towards Albania and the international community.

No further comment.”
