Greek, US Defense leaders meet at Pentagon
Acting Defense Secretary Patrick M. Shanahan met with Greek Defense Minister Evangelos Apostolakis today at the Pentagon to reaffirm the defense relationship between the two nations.
The leaders discussed a broad range of defense issues, including regional security in the Balkans and Black Sea, and the regional effects of great power competition with Russia and China. They agreed to continue working together on NATO burden-sharing and defense modernization priorities, Pentagon officials said.
Shanahan applauded efforts by Greece and North Macedonia to implement the Prespa agreement, which will ultimately result in the expansion of the NATO alliance.
