"The commitment of the United States and the Biden government to the stability and prosperity of Greece, the Balkans, Southeastern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean is demonstrated by the signing of the renewed defense agreement between Greece and the United States," said Foreign Minister Nikos. at the Associated Press.

Diplomatic sources: Excellent atmosphere at the Dendia-Blinken meeting

This is because, as he states, the agreement was signed at a time when the US is more focused on the Indo-Pacific region.

"It is clear that the US government and the United States are focusing on meeting the Chinese challenge to the United States. This is absolutely clear. The AUKUS agreement is a prime example of a shift in US interest. "

At the same time, he emphasizes that "Greece, as a country of medium size, but located in an extremely unstable region, considers that the American presence is still necessary in the Southeastern Mediterranean."

The Foreign Minister emphasizes that the agreement implies "a strengthened American presence in mainland Greece and especially in Thrace, in Northeastern Greece, an area that is particularly important both for us Greeks and for NATO and the USA".

It is also located, as he reminded, near our border with Turkey, just a few kilometers.

Mr. Dendias stressed that "this is not an agreement that is directed, or is going to be directed against anyone else", but an agreement between the two countries, which aims at "stability and prosperity of the two countries".

"Is Turkey becoming a target through these agreements? "My clear answer is no, not at all," he said, adding: "We would very much like Turkey to be part of this understanding in the future. Of course, for this to happen, Turkey will have to change its behavior. Turkey must understand that the right course is through International Law, the International Law of the Sea. "Not through threats of war."

"If the US presence is not becoming apparent, then some countries may form 'smart' ideas about their role," he said.

"There are countries in the region as a whole that envision themselves as local superpowers. "Sometimes I am afraid that Turkey might fall into this category."

Finally, regarding the Greece-France defense agreement, Mr. Dendias stressed that "this is an agreement complementary to NATO, it does not limit the role of NATO."
