He also pointed out the progress in military cooperation between the two countries.

Mitsotakis argued that Alexandroupolis (Dedeagac), a northern region of Greece, has great strategic importance, and Greece has become an important gate in energy flow to Europe.

He also said the country has also become a hub in the field of data stock and management with the investments of companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google.

The Greek premier argued that Türkiye has rhetoric that escalates tensions in bilateral relations, further saying that Athens is in favor of dialogue based on international law and the maritime law.

The US delegation was chaired by Adam Smith, chairman of the Armed Services Committee of the US House of Representatives. He was accompanied by the US Ambassador to Athens, George Tsunis.
