Greece: Pompeo and Greek counterpart discuss eastern Mediterranean tensions

Greece, Thessaloniki
September 28, 2020 at 09:49 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with his Greek counterpart, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias in Thessaloniki on Monday, for talks focused on tensions in the eastern Mediterranean between Greece and Turkey.

The relationship between Athens and Ankara, both NATO allies, has deteriorated over exploration rights and maritime boundaries, leading to both countries sending warships to the area claimed by both countries.

The US Secretary of State also took part in a round table discussion followed by the signing of an agreement on scientific and technological cooperation between Greece and the USA, in the presence of Environment and Energy Minister Costis Hatzidakis and Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis.

Pompeo is set to continue his Greek five-day-trip with a visit of Souda Bay Naval base in Crete, to underline the US security partnership with Greece, and he's expected to meet with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
