Greek Diaspora Minister Diamataris's statement following his resignationResignation from the post of Deputy Foreign Minister for Diaspora Greeks

In his statement of resignation, which was earlier accepted by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Deputy Foreign Minister responsible for Diaspora Greeks Antonis Diamataris said, according to ANA: "I have been dealing with the issues of the Greek community for decades. My only concern over the years is to make a contribution to Hellenism. That is why I accepted the proposal of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to take over the portfolio of the Deputy Foreign Minister in charge of Diaspora Greeks.

In recent days, I have been the recipient of personal attacks that are disorienting and aim to strike at the government and the prime minister, whom I love and esteem, as well as undermining my work. For this reason, I have submitted to Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with feelings of personal anguish, my resignation from the post of Deputy Foreign Minister for Diaspora Greeks."
