US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt sent a positive message for the future of Greek-American relations following the swearing-in ceremony of the new American President Donald Trump.
There is a dynamic and strong commitment by both parties – Republican and Democratic – to the alliance with Greece as well as to the strong relationship between the two peoples, said Pyatt when asked about the future of the Greek-American relations, at an event organized by the Republicans of Greece in a hotel, in Athens, late on Friday.
The US ambassador also referred to the NATO alliance, which, as he noted, for decades kept the US on the side of Greece, as well as to Washington’s expectation “to see Greece as a strong, economically sound and prosperous EU and NATO member state.”
He expressed confidence that a combination of the two policies will give Greece great potential. Moreover, the ambassador said it will be an exciting time for all the Americans as well as a good period for the Greek-US relations.
Given the message of the Trump presidency for the United States, he said that the American democracy is strong and pointed out that the swearing-in ceremony is a celebration of democracy, a commitment of all Americans for a healthy democratic process, for an orderly transition of power, and a new beginning.
