Gov’t congratulates Biden on White House win


The Greek government congratulates Joe Biden on his White House win, spokesman Stelios Petsas told a press briefing Monday.

Citing a post by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on social media, Petsas described Biden as a “true friend” of Greece, adding that he expected ties between Athens and Washington to become “even stronger” under his presidency.

“We expect to work [with the US] on strengthening bilateral ties of friendship and cooperation for peace and stability in the region with full respect to international law and the law of the sea,” he said.
