During a meeting with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis at Maximos Mansion on Thursday, Menendez highlighted the leading role played by Greece in current major international and regional issues.
Furthermore, during a speech at the Acropolis Museum later in the day, Menendez said the rules-based international order that brought so much prosperity, peace and progress in the decades since WWII is under threat like never before.
“We have an increasingly bold China, determined to rewrite the rules of the world in its own favor… A revanchist Russia threatening the security of its neighbors, and an increasingly aggressive Turkey,” he noted.
