US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Hannah Rosenthal completed a four-day visit to Latvia on Monday.
During her stay the diplomat met with the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other local leaders over the Baltic nation's role in combating anti-semitism and extremism.
The next stop in her tour of northern Europe will be Sweden, where Rosenthal will meet the controversial mayor of Malmo Ilmar Reepalu, who has often offended the Jewish community in the city."I will be meeting with the mayor, I am aware of his remarks and I will express my concern," Rosenthal told JTA last week.
