February 9, 2020

WASHINGTON – President Trump welcomed Greece’s new Ambassador to the US, Alexandra Papadopoulou, at the White House and said defense ties would get stronger as well after the renewal of a military agreement last year and with the US wanting to expand a military presence in Greece.
Papadopoulou, the former chief diplomatic adviser to Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is the first woman to represent Greece in Washington, and as he also named a woman to be Greece’s symbolic President, easily ratified by the Parliament in January.

Trump, who was upset the US Congress stepped in to prevent the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Turkey, which had bought a Russian S-400 missile defense that could compromise NATO, also cited long-standing US and Greek ties, with the countries allied in every major war.
