STATEMENT BY SECRETARY KERRY

 

On the Occasion of Greek National Day

 

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I extend best wishes to the people of Greece on the 193rd anniversary of your independence on March 25.
 
My home of Massachusetts is host to one of the largest Greek-American communities in the United States.  During my time in statewide political office, I served beside a proud Greek-American, former Governor Michael S. Dukakis.  When I joined the United States Senate, I succeeded another equally proud Greek-American, Paul Tsongas.
 
My experience has been enriched through my visits to Greece, and I was happy to welcome Foreign Minister Venizelos to the State Department last year. 
 
From the ancient Greek thinkers, whose ideas and principles inspired America’s Founding Fathers, to the modern Hellenic Republic, the bonds between us are strong and continue to grow. 
 


The United States stands in solidarity with Greece as a NATO ally, and we look forward to deepening our security partnership in the years to come. 
 
Beyond our strong bilateral relationship, our people share important values and cultural ties.  We will continue to encourage the commercial, educational, and exchange opportunities that serve as the foundation of our friendship.
 
We applaud Greece’s leadership of the EU Council Presidency, and we are committed to working together to ensure a more secure and prosperous future for Greeks and Americans alike.
