Israel Cuts Farm Aid to Greece

Israel has stopped all agricultural assistance to Greece, on the orders of Agriculture Minister Avraham Katz-Oz, Ha’aretz reported Thursday.

According to the minister’s associates, he made the decision because the Greek government’s “negative” policy toward Israel is incompatible with the extensive agricultural aid it receives from Israel.

Ha’aretz said the ban was not coordinated with the Foreign Ministry.
