US Ambassador to Greece George Tsunis spoke of a much needed cooperation among allies to address the challenges in matters of international order, on the first day of the two-day Athens Security Forum that is being held on Wednesday.
Addressing the thematic forum ‘The New Europe – Facing the Challenges of Multiple Crises’, the American diplomat added that parallel to this cooperation runs a deep commitment to safeguarding democracy, the democratic ethos and the notion of freedom.
Greece is the most important ally of the United States in this region and a pillar of stability, noted Tsunis, mentioning that are several pockets of instability in the Balkans and the Midlle East.
Tsunis also noted that Greece is a rising energy provider in Southeastern Europe, and a country also firmly placed among the ten most important countries in terms of renewable energy sources.
The Athens Security Forum is organized by the Institute of International Relations (IDIS), which is affiliated with the Department of International & European Studies at Panteion University of Social & Political Sciences. It is being held at the Hellenic Armed Forces Officers’ Club.
