US President Joe Biden and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis discussed the 201st year of the establishment of relations between the two countries and the Russian-Ukrainian war during a meeting at the White House.
Biden and Mitsotakis made press statements ahead of their meeting at the White House.
Stating that Greece has been an important partner of the US for 2 centuries, Biden said that at the meeting they will discuss “common democratic values.”
Biden noted that the topic of the war between Russia and Ukraine will be one of the main issues for discussion.
The US President added: “Unfortunately, Russia’s brutal attacks on Ukraine are at the same time an attack by autocrats on democracy. This is a test for world order.”
Biden thanked Mitsotakis for his “leadership” on many international issues and said they would also discuss issues such as defense partnership, energy security and climate change during the meeting.
The meeting was closed to the press.
