Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias outlined the multitudinous aspects of the relationship between Greece and the United States in his opening remarks at the third round of the two countries’ Strategic Dialogue meeting in Washington on Thursday.

Dendias was addressing his US counterpart Antony Blinken, ahead of the two ministers’ signing of the upgraded five-year Mutual Defence Cooperation Agreement (MDCA) shortly afterwards.

“Our strategic partnership has reached an unprecedented level by enhancing cooperation in many areas, such as enforcement, counter-terrorism, energy, economy, trade, culture and people to people contacts. The relevant stakeholders will address, later today, ways of expanding them even further. The revision of the Mutual Defence Cooperation Agreement we will sign in a few minutes, is, symbolically and substantially, the foundation of our long-term partnership” Dendias underlined.

Moreove, he stated “We understand that the US is increasingly preoccupied with challenges on other parts of the world. So, dear Tony, your commitment to Greece is greatly appreciated. You are investing in strategic locations in our country. Following the migrant crisis and the tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean, last year, they acquired increased importance. You are underlining that the US, as well as Greece, are firmly determined to mutually safeguard and protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of each country. Against actions threatening to peace, including armed attack or threat thereof.
In the Eastern Mediterranean, where Greece is facing a casus belli, a threat with war if it exercises its sovereign rights, and I have to say, Greece is facing daily provocations. Greece is committed to resolve disputes through diplomacy and always in accordance with International Law.
“Over the past two years, we have concluded agreements on the delimitation of sea zones with Italy and Egypt, and agreed with Albania to defer this issue to the International Court of Justice.
“We very highly appreciate your firm belief that sovereign rights should be respected in accordance with the International Law of the Sea. We hope that all countries of the world will embrace this principle. We stand ready and willing to work with them, on this basis. We have already established strategic ties with common partners and Allies. I am happy that I met our Israeli counterpart yesterday, as you did, by the way, and I will be meeting my Emirati counterpart later today.
Greece, being the first Southeast European country to join the European Union, has also an increased responsibility to ensure the integration of the Western Balkans into the European family. So as to promote stability and prevent forces that want to turn the clock backwards to dominate this volatile region. Recently, Greece concluded a security and defence agreement with our NATO Ally, France. This agreement will contribute to enhancing our defence. It will also contribute in enhancing the European pillar of NATO, which is very important. And towards a fairer burden sharing between the two sides of the Atlantic. Because, Greece is and will remain a fully committed Ally to NATO. We will strive to enhance relations between the EU and the US, as well as between the EU and NATO as part of our contribution to strengthening the transatlantic bond, which is the cornerstone of our foreign policy”
