Greek foreign minister decries ‘unacceptable’ Hezbollah threats against Cyprus

Greece’s foreign minister says that threats by Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah against Cyprus last week were unacceptable and the European Union would stand by member states against all such threats.

“It is absolutely unacceptable to make threats against a sovereign state of the European Union,” Greek Foreign Minister George Gerapetritis tells reporters on arrival in Brussels for a monthly foreign ministers meeting. “We stand by Cyprus and we will all be together in all kinds of global threats coming from terrorist organizations.”
