Following the US Vice President Mike Pence’s statement that “the bonds between the United States of America and Greece have never been stronger”, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stated that he is “very proud to be leading Greece in these historic times for our bilateral relations, a relationship that can only go from strength to strength.”
The comments were made at a dinner in honour of the Greek PM at the State Department.
“Greece has been, is and will remain the most sincere US ally,” he said adding that the United States supports Greece in the struggle for its values and its future while focusing on economic growth and the creation of prosperity for all Greeks.
He further added that he had “spent 72 fantastic hours in the United States embarking on a beautiful trip to Florida, Tarpon Springs, where we saw how powerful the Greek-American community is.”
Mitsotakis noted that discussions in the US capital ranged from the geopolitical situation in the region to investment opportunities. He also stated that Greece is following the example of the United States in reducing taxes and as a result, the Greek economy is getting better and better.
“We are now ready to write a new chapter in our history, and as we enter the third decade of the 21st century, I am sure it may be the decade of Greek success”, the Greek PM stressed, inviting US investors to take part in this new chapter for the country.
