«I corroborate the statement made by, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, that relations between our two countries have never been as close and productive as they are today. They are relations that spread over all levels» Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday, in a press conference with Pompeo after their visit to the Souda base on Crete.
He also expressed his satisfaction that Pompeo will be a guest in Chania, where the prime minister originates, and noted that on the island of Crete «beats not just the heart of Greece and the heart of the Eastern Mediterranean. There also beats the strong pulse of Greek-US cooperation. It is no accident that we are now speaking from the 115 Battle Wing of our Air Force».
«Souda is emerging as the most strategic location of the wider region. Here, the interests of our two countries meet, along with those of security and peace» Mitsotakis added.
