Coats Asks Greek Ambassador to Clarify Threatening Comments by Defense Minister

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) has sent a letter to Christos Panagopoulos, Ambassador of Greece to the United States, expressing concern about recent statements made by Panos Kammenos, the Minister of Defense of Greece.

Earlier this month, Minister Kammenos threatened Greece’s European Union partners, warning that Greece would issue travel documents to thousands of illegal immigrants – including jihadists – now held in Greek detention centers unless Greece’s economic demands are met.  

In his letter to Ambassador Panagopoulos, Coats wrote, “I believe it is in your interest as well as ours that you or another senior spokesman of the Greek government publicly comment on those threatening statements and clarify whether they reflect current policy or thinking within your government.  With such clarification, I hope I will be able to support the Senate resolution regarding Greek independence and our shared democratic traditions.”

Coats currently has a hold – which prevents legislation from passing via unanimous consent – on the Senate’s annual resolution celebrating Greek Independence Day. 

The full letter is below:

March 24, 2015

His Excellency Christos P. Panagopoulos
Ambassador of the Hellenic Republic
2217 Massachusetts Avenue, NW 
Washington, DC  20008

Excellency:

I write to express my concern about recent reported statements by Minister of Defense of Greece, Panos Kammenos.  These statements are inconsistent with the warm bilateral relationship reflected in the Resolution on Greek Independence Day that is now pending in the Senate.

According to widespread and reliable media reports, Minister Kammenos explicitly threatened Greece’s European Union partners, warning that Greece would issue travel documents to thousands of illegal immigrants now held in Greek detention centers unless Greece’s economic demands are met.  He threatened in particular that among this “wave” of immigrants then freed to travel throughout the European Union could be “Jihadist” enemies. 

With these statements, the Minister threatened the security of his country’s own allies.  Since holders of European Union travel documents also travel easily to the United States, this threat extends to our own security interests as well.

I do not believe that such outrageous statements actually reflect official Greek Government policy.  Nevertheless, coming as they do from such a senior government minister, they are inconsistent with the warm bilateral relationship normally reflected in the Senate’s annual resolution marking Greek independence. 

I believe it is in your interest as well as ours that you or another senior spokesman of the Greek government publicly comment on those threatening statements and clarify whether they reflect current policy or thinking within your government.  With such clarification, I hope I will be able to support the Senate resolution regarding Greek independence and our shared democratic traditions. 

Permit me to express again the highest regard I hold for Greece, as the birthplace of western culture and democracy; for the long positive relationship between our two countries; and for you personally.

Sincerely,

Dan Coats
U.S. SenatorΤ
