Exclamation Protesters burn US, NATO flags during Pompeo's visit in Athens

Protesters burn US, NATO flags during Pompeo's visit in Athens

Protesters have burned US and NATO flags in Athens as the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held meetings with Greek government officials.

Thousands marched outside the US Embassy in the Greek capital, holding up signs that read "Pompeo go home," and threw red paint on a statue of former US president Harry Truman in the city center.

Greece and the United States have traditionally close relations even though many blame Washington for its tacit support for a military junta that ruled Greece between 1967 and 1974. Protest marches to the US Embassy are an annual event.

Demonstrators, which included supporters of the Greek Communist Party, held banners against Greek-US military cooperation. The United States uses a base on the island of Crete for naval and sea operations in the region.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
