In a statement, the President of the United States Joe Biden welcomed the re-election of Mitsotakis as Greece’s Prime Minister.
“I look forward to continuing our close cooperation on shared priorities to foster prosperity and regional security,” Biden said in the statement.
“Together—as Allies, partners, and friends—Greece and the United States have championed democracy. We will keep working with the government and people of Greece as well as our vibrant Greek-American community in the United States to continue this legacy.”
France’s President Emmanuel Macron posted on Twitter, hailing the 55-year-old New Democracy party leader as a friend and partner of France.
“Let’s continue to work together for a stronger and more sovereign Europe,” Macron said.
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak also congratulated Mitsotakis on his re-election. Sunak said he looks forward to working closely with his Greek counterpart to strengthen the two countries’ long-standing relationship.
According to AMNA.gr, Mitsotakis even spoke on Monday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who congratulated him on assuming office after Sunday’s elections.
