Before the meeting, during which Rivlin and Pavlopoulos discussed strengthening bilateral Israel-Greece ties, the two leaders toured the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial together.

Rivlin called Pavlopoulos a “true friend of Israel.”

“Close and neighboring countries in the eastern Mediterranean must recognize the common danger posed by militant Islam and ISIS (Islamic State), unite against this enemy, and to form one alliance — a regional security and economic alliance to bring an end to global terror,” Rivlin said.

Pavlopoulos said, “There are many challenges in our region and in Europe in general. Now is the time to act according to our shared values. You have experienced what it means to be refugees. In Greece we are receiving refugees just as our ancestors did, as human beings who deserve rights. Yet when it comes to terrorism, the example of the jihadists and ISIS, we cannot accept this, and we must be absolute in the face of this. Their terror is aimed at all humanity.”
