Greece-US relations are at their best possible point, said Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday evening while speaking with US President Donald Trump at the White House.
Mitsotakis did also emphasize the potential for improving relations between the two countries in terms of "our geopolitical part, the field of defense in which we have made great progress, and in which we can ensure that Greece will always be a reliable ally in a complex world."
Focusing on the economic aspect of bilateral relations, Mitsotakis noted that "the Greek economy has recovered in recent months, we have reduced taxes," while "in addition, we are following a policy that has also worked well in the US," he added.
Addressing the US President, Mitsotakis said that "we look forward to your positive support, we want US businesses to invest in Greece so that we can expand the economy at a rate so striking that people will really feel the difference."
He pointed out that the US can always rely on Greece as a reliable and predictable partner.
Donald Trump expressed his appreciation for this stance and congratulated Mitsotakis on the performance of Greece's economy.
"In terms of percentage growth, we're talking about one of the biggest rebounds in the world. It's a huge recovery and you have done very well," Trump observed.
