Malliotakis Meets with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis

WASHINGTON, DC – On May 17, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) joined members of the Congressional Hellenic Caucus and House Committee on Foreign Affairs in attending meetings with Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic Kyriakos Mitsotakis following his address to a Joint Session of Congress. During the meetings, the lawmakers discussed several issues important to U.S.-Greece relations, including energy independence, military cooperation, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and Turkish aggression.

“Freedom and Democracy are not the only core principles that serve as the foundation for the U.S.-Greece relationship. In fact, the United States and Greece rely on each other for both economic and military support,” Malliotakis said. “During our meetings, we discussed several issues important to our countries’ relationship, including the need to bolster energy independence for both the United States and Europe, Greece’s plan to acquire F-35 fighter jets, the potential to supply Greece’s military with retired U.S. Navy Ships, and the important work conducted at Souda Naval Base in Crete. Additionally, I affirmed my support for the reunification of Cyprus and assured the Prime Minister that his Hellenic partners in Congress remain opposed to any sale of U.S. military equipment to Turkey, which has shown ongoing aggression, the most recent being repeated military flights over the Greek Islands.”

Malliotakis is a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs where she serves as the Ranking Member for the Subcommittee on International Development, International Organizations, and Global Corporate Social Impact, and sits on the Subcommittee on Europe, Energy, the Environment, and Cyber.
