The role of Greece as a pillar of stability and security for the European Union, NATO and the wider region of Southeastern Mediterranean was highlighted at the meeting.


ATHENS - The United States has a strong and historic relationship with Greece because it trusts it to act in a reliable way, US Ambassador George Tsunis said on Tuesday, at the first press briefing held after meeting with Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias earlier in the day.
