The Greek alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, George Katrougalos, met with American Ambassador to Greece, Geoffrey Pyatt in Athens on Tuesday morning to discuss the state of current affairs between the two countries.

The two officials met in the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs in central Athens. According to the Greek state-run AMNA news agency, the main focus of their discussion was Greece’s role in maintaining the stability of the broader region of southeastern Europe.

They also discussed the Strategic Dialogue and bilateral relations between the two countries, which have been very warm over the last several years.

The two men expressed their countries’ mutual belief that Greece will strengthen its position by promoting the regional stability which the Prespa agreement will bring to the entire region. Pyatt reaffirmed U.S. support for the agreement, stating that he believes it will solve a longstanding problem with the neighboring country of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

FYROM will change its official name to ”North Macedonia” under one of the several provisions of the Prespa agreement, which is up for debate in the FYROM parliament this week.
