On December 9, 2013, a high ranking EJC delegation visited Athens and in a meeting at the Maximos Mansion presented Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras with an award "in recognition of his courageous leadership in protecting tolerance and human rights".
EJC leaders, accompanied by Greek Jewish leaders, discussed with P.M. Samaras the rise of extremism in Europe, the recent FRA survey on anti-Semitism and the next European Parliament elections. EJC leaders commended P.M. Samaras on his leadership, especially his brave and courageous stand against the Golden Dawn party.
The delegation also met with Greek Culture Minister Panos Panagiotopoulos over a working lunch, hosted by the Minister near Acropolis.
