Mitsotakis and Harris Discuss East Med and Middle East Issues

WASHINGTON – US Vice President Kamala Harris discussed current geopolitical developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The fourth meeting between the two sides took place in the Capitol on Tuesday, after the Greek prime minister’s address to a joint congressional session.

According to the US Vice President’s Office, Kamala Harris reaffirmed the strong Greek-American alliance, as well as the common commitment to democratic values, international law and the rule of law.

In addition, she thanked the Greek prime minister for Greece’s strong support in Ukraine and its solidarity against Russian aggression. In fact, she recognised Greece’s contribution to the efforts made by Europe to diversify its energy supply.

“Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ visit to Washington highlighted all the major issues for the international legal order, the region of the South-Eastern Mediterranean, the role of Greece and its relations with the United States, which are at the highest historical level,” Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said on Wednesday in a Twitter post.

Dendias also posted a series of photos from Mitsotakis’ meetings with Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, on which he accompanied the prime minister.
