President Biden, a self-proclaimed great friend of Greece
US President Joe Biden said recently that under his administration, the nations of the United States and Greece will be as close as possible.
The President had participated in an online event to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution, which was attended by more than 100 members of the Greek-American community.
The event was coordinated by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has Greek roots herself, with Biden addressing the expatriates, saying: “I see many good friends on the screen.”
Biden reiterated his intention of bringing the relations of the US and Greece closer than ever.
“I promise you that. I am committed to building a stronger partnership than we already have and promoting our common interests. That was the main issue we talked about with the Prime Minister,” Biden said during the March event.
“I have not given up yet,” Biden said in a reference to the Cyprus problem, noting that he had collaborated for many years on this issue with his close friend, the late senator who had Greek roots, Paul Sarbanes.
