MUNICH – Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and US Vice-President Kamala Harris discussed all aspects of Greece-US relations during their meeting in Munich on Saturday evening, said Greek government sources.

Both the Greek premier and the US V.P. are attending the 58th Munich Security Conference (MSC), among numerous other state leaders and officials.

The Greek premier briefed Harris on his intention to bring the Protocol of Amendment to the US-Greece Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement (MDCA) to Greek Parliament for ratification in coming weeks, it was added.
