Amb. Pyatt: U.S. and Greece Defense Relationship Is at an All-Time High

November 30, 2020

ATHENS — US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt said on Monday that the U.S. and Greece defense relationship is at an all-time high adding that all reports to the contrary are false and misrepresentations of U.S. policy.

"Τhe United States, at the highest levels, has welcomed Greece’s interest in acquiring the F-35 for the Hellenic Air Force. We have signaled our support for procurement and are working closely together on a future acquisition program, which would enhance Greece’s defense capabilities, ensure interoperability with U.S. Armed Forces and improve regional stability. All reports to the contrary are false and misrepresentations of U.S. policy," Pyatt underlined.

"The U.S.-Greece defense relationship is at an all-time high and is one of America’s strongest military relationships in Europe. We take great pride in our defense and security partnership with Greece and work daily to advance that from strength to strength, including through Greece’s future acquisition of the F-35. The path to acquisition of the F-35 is a multi-year process that would naturally build upon the successes realized in Greece's F-16 Viper upgrade program," he added.
