Israel will always stand at Greece’s side, visiting Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said on Wednesday as he accepted an honorary doctorate awarded to him by the University of Piraeus, during a ceremony held at the Eugenides Foundation in Athens.

“The Greek spirit will prevail and we will stand by your side forever, even after your ‘marathon’ has been successfully completed,” Rivlin said at the event attended by Greece’s political and military leadership.
