ATHENS – “It has been confirmed that Greek-American relations are at their best possible level in many decades,” government spokesperson Stelios Petsas said in an interview with One Channel on Wednesday, following a meeting between Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and US President Donald Trump.

He underlined that the US President used very flattering words to describe the course of the Greek economy, sending a message to American investors to invest in Greece. Moreover, he said the US president now has a a very clear picture of the geopolitical developments in Greece’s region. “And, of course, of the fact that Greece, which is a stable and reliable ally of the US, can be a part of the solution and not of the problem. These are the three main results of the meeting during which the prime minister emphatically raised all the issues relating to our sovereign rights,” Petsas said.

Referring to the purchase of a squadron of F-35s, he said that this discussion would last about a year and a half so that once the F-16 upgrade was completed Greece will be in a position to begin the procurement of these aircraft, based on the fiscal space available, from 2024-2025 onwards.

Petsas stressed that the Armed Forces must always have the capability to do whatever it takes to defend Greece’s sovereign rights.

The government spokesperson underlined that everyone in the US, including US President Donald Trump, recognises that Greece plays a very important role in the region.

On Turkish provocations in the Eastern Mediterranean, he said that they must be curbed, adding that Turkey must decide what its position is within the NATO alliance.

  1. Of course U.S relations with Greece are great!

    The are about to lose their Nato buddies Turkey ..the core country to wage war on humanity..and need Greece to become there mule to launch wars from!

    Greece is and may be the last man standing to promote U.S interests and support an Organized Crime family that doesn’t even respect any international Agreements.. and can march into a foreign country Iraq and Kill 600000 people , and then kill foreign leaders who are invited to the country of Iraq to do business , but are not friends of America and there little friends from Israel!

    Petras proudly tell Greeks that the government of Greece , after witnessing another country Iraq demand that after 20 years ..that they will not cooperate with an Orgainzed Crime Family selling Exceptional ability to kill human beings ,because they say so!

    The Problem is . and everybody knows ..once you are part of the cannot get out !

    To this point . despite breaking all international laws and commiting crimes agaisnt humanity in Iraq.. Donnie tell Iraq.. that he never intended to take troops out of his annexed territories in Iraq, Afganistan, Syria etc etc…and he will leave when he wants ..and get this .. Iraq will have to pay for closing US bases!

    So declaring that Greece is now the point country of Not Nato..but the Organized crime family of Washington!
