Greece’s Prime Minister meets with US Secretary of State


Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with Unites States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on Saturday, January 6 in Chania, Crete.

According to AMNA, Mitsotakis and Blinken analysed during the meeting the US’s relations with Greece.

Both leaders confirmed that due to the excellent level of relations between Greece and the US, they will make more positive steps in the future when it comes to their defence cooperation.

They then exchanged their views on international and regional issues, putting a focus on developments in the Middle East.

Mitsotakis shared his increased concerns about the humanitarian situation in Gaza, where he expressed the need for a flow of humanitarian aid to be provided to Gaza. He said the only solution was for two-states to come together, show support and assist.

They also exchanged their views on developments in Ukraine, where Blinken thanked Mitsotakis for Greece’s support from the beginning, and the Eastern Mediterranean situation, where Mitsotakis shared how Greece wants a peaceful resolution.

“We are standing together facing some of the most acute challenges that we’ve seen, but the fact that we’re standing together, that we’re working together, is a tremendous source of strength and reassurance for the United States,” Blinken said after the meeting.

During this meeting in Crete, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Giorgos Gerapetritis, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexandra Papadopoulou, the director of the diplomatic office of the Prime Minister, Ambassador Anna Maria Boura and Prime Minister’s Special Advisor on International Policy and Public Diplomacy, Aristotelia Peloni, were all in attendance.
