Greece Independence Day – United States Department of State

On behalf of the Government and people of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Greece and Greeks around the world as you celebrate the 203rd anniversary of the founding of the Hellenic Republic.

It was an honor to meet with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis at his family home in Crete in January and to host Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Georgios Gerapetritis at the U.S.-Greece Strategic Dialogue in February.  Together we underscored our growing bilateral and transatlantic relationship founded on shared democratic values.

On Europe’s southeastern frontier, bilateral partner and NATO Ally Greece has served as a principled proponent of peace and prosperity, and I thank you for your continued leadership.  Further, we share a common vision for peaceful, sustainable, and transparent cooperation in space under the Artemis Accords.

The United States and Greece benefit from deep and enduring ties between our people including a profound commitment to democracy, innovation, and expanding educational opportunities for all people, regardless of background or ability.  As the birthplace of democracy, Greece serves as an inspiration to the principles we hold dear and draw upon to address today’s global challenges.

The United States applauds Greece’s continuing support of Ukrainian sovereignty, humanitarian aid to Gaza, support of Israel, and participation in Operation Prosperity Guardian.  We value Greece’s partnership on issues like climate change, and for its leadership in hosting this year’s Our Ocean Conference.  As we look toward another year of challenges and opportunities, I am heartened that our partnership is stronger than ever.

I look forward to deepening our partnership and friendship, and I wish the people of Greece a year of peace, prosperity, and good health.
