US Secretary of State nominee Antony Blinken said if his appointment is confirmed by the US Senate, he will work to continue deepening ties between the United States, Greece and Cyprus.

Replying in writing to a question by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Robert Menendez, over how he will continue investments described in the Eastern Mediterranean Security and Energy Partnership Act, Blinken said that “if confirmed, I look forward to reviewing this legislation and working with Congress and colleagues in the interagency to support robust ties between the United States and Greece, Israel, and Cyprus.

“The US-Greece security relationship is important to our interests in the Eastern Mediterranean and has grown significantly as bilateral ties have improved, beginning in the Obama-Biden administration. If confirmed, I will work to continue to deepen ties between the United States and Greece, as well as Cyprus,” he added.
