A young Yazidi woman, Nadia Murad Basee Taha, who recently made headlines after she appealed to the UN Security Council to ‘wipe out’ the so-called ‘Islamic State’ was received by President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old, who managed escape from the clutches of the Islamic terrorist group after 3 months of captivity and torture, told the Greek President of her ordeal and how thousands of Syrian and Iraqi girls have been abducted as and sold on as sex slaves.
From the presidential mansion in Athens the Yazidi woman called for the international community to hear out her pleads and take action against the brutalities and crimes against humanity that are being carried out in Iraq and Syria.
President Pavlopoulos commented that Nadia Murad Basee Taha has become a modern symbol of bravery and defending human dignity and stressed that the Daesh criminals must be dealt with immediately and decisively.
