It is reported that the USA's Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Tom Ridge, believes that more work is required on security matters for the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
He aired his views whilst meeting with the Greek Public Order Minister, Yiorgos Voulgarakis, during the latter's visit to Washington.
The USA is willing to help with security, if invited by Greece to do so.
The Greek Tourism Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos is reported to have said that "Greece is a safe destination. The noise made across the world (about the attacks) was louder than the one created by the firecrackers that went off."
So that's alright then.
