Austria’s newly elected leader, Sebastian Kurz, has vowed a zero tolerance policy on anti-Semitism in his governing coalition, seeking to quell fears over a right-wing government that could include a far-right party with Nazi sympathies.

“The battle against anti-Semitism and our policy of zero tolerance against all anti-Semitic tendencies is very important to me,” Kurz told Israel Hayom. “It is a clear precondition for the formation of any coalition under my leadership.”
