Delighted to welcome BG Sylvia to Greece to discuss Greece's important role in Defender 2021, as well as the deployment of elements of @101CAB in Alexandroupoli & its winter training rotation in Stefanovikio, further deepening US-Greece defense cooperation under the updated MDCA.
Proud to join @npanagioto , @Hellenic_MOD , @US_EUCOM , @USArmyEurope to celebrate the port of #Alexandroupoli 's 150th year & mark another historic milestone for this strategic maritime asset & for US-Greece defense & security relationship. #WeAreNATO #StrongEurope #AtlanticResolve
Until next time, #Alexandroupoli ! US-Greece security & economic collaboration in this region sends a clear message that a stronger & more secure Greece serves US interests. We will continue to deepen our engagement here to strengthen @NATO Alliance & promote regional stability.
US, Greece urge restraint, respect for international norms
Important discussion with Minister@NikosDendias on our shared objectives for regional stability, our shared interests in the western Balkans, and planning for the next US-Greece Strategic Dialogue. Also reiterated our deep disappointment with Turkey's decision on #HagiaSophia .
The US-Greece relationship is at its highest point in decades. Thanks to leadership from Prime Minister@kmitsotakis , the Greek economy is making a comeback, and their contributions to NATO are second only to the United States. ????
As soon as I returned from from Mt.Athos, I stopped by to check on the Harry Truman statue - a symbol of the US-Greece alliance and a reminder of the American people’s generosity during Greece’s darkest days.
The Greek people will not give in to fear-mongering. The old political establishment that is responsible for the debt is against us. #Greece
