As such, I commend and congratulate Senator Menendez’s outreach to the Secretary of Defense to request additional U.S. assistance to Greece. Allies should assist their fellow allies in their hour of need, and Greece, a true friend and ally of the United States, deserves, and needs, our support, during this very difficult time."
