Special Secretary for Religious and Cultural Diplomacy Dr. Efstathios Lianos Liantis meets with the US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt (07 May 2019)

Tuesday, 07 May 2019

The Special Secretary for Religious and Cultural Diplomacy, Dr. Efstathios Lianos Liantis, met today with US Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt, who congratulated him on assuming his new duties as Special Envoy for Combating Anti-Semitism and Safeguarding the Memory of the Holocaust.

During the meeting, the prospect of cooperation between Greece and the US in the effort to eradicate anti-Semitism was discussed, which constitutes a top priority for both countries. In addition, they had the opportunity to exchange views related to the geopolitical role of religion and incidents of religious extremism, which have recently been observed on a global level.

The observation was mutual that cooperation is required both on a political as well as an academic level, in order to shape the framework of cooperation and the content of the policies aimed at tackling intolerance and adopting the human values of religious freedom, pluralism, and respect of religious beliefs and traditions.
