ATHENS – Meeting a delegation from the American Jewish Committee, Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos told them ties with Israel remain strong.

Kammenos is head of the Independent Greeks (ANEL), a marginal party in a coalition with the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

A nationalist hardliner who has already provoked Turkey, Kammenos said he wants Greece to stay tight with Israel, saying he was trying to dispel previous notions to the contrary.

In a statement issued after the talks with Kammenos and other Greek government officials on March 12, the AJC said the main topics discussed included “efforts to achieve progress in Greece’s dramatic economic situation” and “attempts to combat anti-Semitism, including the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn political movement.”

The statement referred to “excellent meetings” with Greek officials who expressed an understanding “of the importance of the strategic partnership between Greece and Israel.”
