French ambassador thanks Greeks for solidarity after terrorist attacks
The French ambassador to Greece, Jean Loup Kuhn-Delforge, expressed his gratitude on Tuesday for the solidarity shown by the Greek people after the terrorist attacks in Paris.
In a message issued by the embassy, Kuhn-Delforge said thousands of Greeks protested "for our common values" adding that "the fight in defence of freedom, against anti-Semitism and darkness concerns us all."
"Personally and in the name of my colleagues at the embassy, I would like to thank each and every one of those who, with their many messages of friendship, stated their solidarity…after the attacks."
The ambassador said France was hit at its heart by actions of unspeakable violence and barbarity, as the French President stated.
"In Greece, the meaning of the emotion which overtook the world and of course France was shared by millions of people who protested in the same spirit, refusing to accept the misinterpretations which are a trap set by those who committed those terrorist acts," he said.
Kuhn-Delforge continued with a plea not to abandon a common determination to fight any type of intolerance. "We owe it to the victims of these heinous attacks."
