"Iran and its Middle East affiliates threaten the stability of the entire region," Herzog said at the meeting. "There is a clear struggle here between the Allies and Iran's dark and dark spindle, which is winding down to take step-by-step control over Middle Eastern countries and poses a direct threat to world peace as well as to the citizens of their countries who are desperate and want to free themselves from power."

Prime Minister Mitzotakis replied to Herzog: "We are fighting uncompromisingly in all forms of anti-Semitism. This is an issue that is very important to me on a personal level as well. I would like to pay a thorough visit to Auschwitz with my wife, as a tribute to all the Greek Jews who perished there."
