There is no indication that Greece is a target for a terrorist attack, but the “lone wolf” hit scenario could not be excluded, said Deputy Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas on Sunday.
The Greek official spoke to national broadcaster ERT, where he commented on the recent deadly attacks in Spain, leaving 14 dead and more than 130 injured.
Toskas said that there are no indications that a terrorist attack could occur in Greece, “without this meaning that there can not be individuals who have in their minds to do things like those we have seen.”
“Greece is a pillar of stability, security and peace, compared not only to the region, but to the rest of Europe too,” Toskas said.
“Our Services, all Services, Police and Intelligence Services, cooperate with the Intelligence and Police Services of other European countries, to prevent such events,” the minister added.
Toskas said that what is happening is “a battle of societies” and stressed that the solution is to have peace in the Middle East, to stop the war, to assimilate the refugees, and “to not have ghettos, like the ones in Europe”, something that Greece “is trying to accomplish through the country’s immigration policy.”
