“Generation after generation, Americans and Greeks have come together to make those words a reality … We see it today, as Greece and America stand together alongside a coalition of more than 50 nations to support the brave people of Ukraine as they fight for the same values those Greek revolutionaries did more than 200 years ago: liberty, freedom, and sovereignty.”

He also shared that he stands in solidarity with Ukraine, aligning with over 50 nations to uphold liberty and sovereignty.

Expressing personal gratitude, Biden also acknowledged his inspiration from Greek American mentors.
