US State Department: US backs Greece in defending sovereignty

The US State Department expressed its support to Greece on Thursday in regards to the reported expulsion of Russian diplomats from the country.

An official from the State Department said that the US completely supports the right of Greece to defend its sovereignty, highlighting the destabilising impact Russia is having on the broader area.

“The United States has expressed its concerns in the past on the negative impact Russia has on this region. Intervening in the democratic procedures of other countries is unacceptable and we support Greece in defending its sovereignty,” the official said.

The official added that the US is concerned about a likely attempt made by Russia to block Greece’s name agreement with FYROM.
