Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece Statement On The Action Of MEP Ioannis Lagos

Greece categorically condemns any action that desecrates a national symbol – in this case the national symbol of Turkey.

The unacceptable actions of representatives of neo-Nazism deviate from Greek and European tradition and constitute attempts at self-promotion by Golden Dawn, an organization that is under indictment and that Greek society voted out of Parliament.

Neo-Nazis represent only themselves.
