“Our message is a message of support for Greece and support for the steps that the Greek government has taken to lower tensions and advance dialogue”, US ambassador to Greece, Geoffrey Pyatt, told the Athens-Maceonian News Agency (ANA).

“We are very aware of the uncertainties that are coming from Ankara right now, but we also appreciate the steps that have been taken, including by the Greek Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Defense in recent days in order to keep a dialogue around confidence building and related measures”, noted the US Ambassador.

As far as Greek-American relations are concerned, Mr. Pyatt said that “it is 100% stable” and stated that “it is not about personalities or individual political parties. It’s between our two nations, between our peoples”.
