During the meeting, particular emphasis was given to a bill currently at the US Congress an initiative of senators Menendez and Marco Rubio on security in the East Mediterranean, the emergence of Turkish provocations as well as the promotion of energy partnerships in the region.
In this context, Tsipras and Menendez discussed the continuously growing of the strategic relationship between Greece and US in areas of security, defense, economy and investments following the US-Greece strategic dialogue that began in December.  
Furthermore, changes in the region's energy map and the key role of Greece in these developments were discussed, as were the strengthening of cooperation between the US and the triad of Greece-Cyprus-Israel, and of cooperation with Egypt.
