Netanyahu Praises Greek-Israeli Similarities


Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu met this evening (Wednesday) with Greece's Foreign Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos. The Prime Minister stated "the colors of our flags are similar, which is not surprising, since Jerusalem and Athens are the foundations of Western civilization. In the last four years our relationship has deepened dramatically and there is still much to do and to discussed. It is good to see you here in Jerusalem," Netanyahu stated. "We are two sister democracies in the Eastern Mediterranean," he added.
