FM Dendias to AP: Upgraded MDCA shows Biden admin's commitment to Greece, region

The upgraded Greece-US Mutual Defense & Cooperation Agreement (MDCA) signed on Thursday shows the United States and President Joe Biden's commitment to stability and prosperity of the Balkans and the East Mediterranean, Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias said in an interview to Associated Press.

As he pointed out, the agreement was signed at a time when the United States focus has switched to the Indian and Pacific Oceans region, therefore it highlights the continuing US commitment to Greece and the region.

Among other things, Dendias said that American presence is still needed in the SE Mediterranean, and reiterated that Greece wishes Turkey to be included in similar agreements in the future, as long as it observes international laws. He also noted that the defense agreement signed οn September 28 between Greece and France does not restrict NATO's role but augments it.
