U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack on Thurs-day expressed the "full satisfaction" of the United States over the level of cooperation existing with the Greek authorities in the framework of efforts to solve the recent terrorist attack against the embassy in Athens.
Replying to a question on the proclamation sent by the "Revolutionary Struggle" group, McCormack said:” We saw the same announcement in the newspapers. It appears that they published something like a manifesto in a Greek language newspaper in which they said that they claim responsibility for the attack on the U.S. embassy and that such attacks will be continued in the future. In the past, they were unknown to the Greek authorities, as well as to us."
The American official noted that "we are working very closely with the Greek authorities on this case to find who are responsible for the attack on our embassy", so that they can be brought before justice.
Lastly, McCormack emphasized the fact that "immediately after the attack, the Greek foreign minister went to the embassy and met with our ambassador there."
