Grεece congratulates 46. US President Joe Biden and Vice Kamala Harris

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis congratulated US President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris upon their swearing-in at the inauguration ceremony held in Washington DC on Wednesday, with a post on social media.

On Twitter, Mitsotakis wrote in English: “Warmest congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. It is with a sense of renewed optimism that we look forward to further strengthening the bonds and friendship between our two nations.”

President Katerina Sakellaropoulou expressed her certainty that Greek-US relations will become even stronger during the tenure of US President Joe Biden, during her speech at a special event organized by the US Embassy, held in Athens on Wednesday.

“Today is an important day, not just for the United States of America, but for the entire world. I am very glad that we are at the ancient market of Athens, the place with the highest symbolic value for democracy. I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Harris, and I am confident that the friendship and cooperation between the two countries will become even stronger,” Sakellaropoulou said.

Joe Biden is considered a friend of Greece and state broadcaster ERT said earlier that his wife Jill has close ties with the country. She has a summer house on a Greek island and furthermore she used to visit Athens and teach English in summer.

PS as usual Greek analysts are expecting a lot from Biden but when time comes he will act as any other US President. Take decisions in favor of U.S. interests.
