During the on-camera meeting before leaving for their bilateral meeting behind closed doors, President Trump praised Greece economy and “the comeback” the country is making following its eight year survival on bailout loans. Greece exited the program in 2018, but still remains under strict supervision from the International Monetary Fund and European partner lenders.
“Greece has made a tremendous comeback,” Trump said. “We’ve worked with them very closely. We’re very proud of Greece and the comeback that they’re making.”
Mitsotakis said Greece economy is doing extremely by noting how it is “following a recipe” that has worked in the United States, including lower taxes and deregulating.
“The Greek economy has done extremely well over the past months,” Mitsotakis said addressing Trump. “We have lowered taxes. We are deregulating. We’re following a recipe that has also worked here in the United States. And the economy is reacting very positively.”
He added that he will be looking for Trump’s support in calling on American companies to invest in Greece.
“We’ll also be looking to your support to convince American companies to invest more in Greece and help us grow the economy at a pace where people are really going to feel the difference.”
When asked about the Turkish provocations and its maritime agreement with Libya signed last month that divides the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, Mitsotakis noted it has “infringes upon Greece’s sovereign rights.”
“It is important to point out that the agreement signed between Turkey and Libya infringe upon Greece’s sovereign rights and essentially cause great concern and instability in a region which is already highly problematic,” Mitsotakis said, adding he is looking forward to Trump support.
Trump said he is discussing the issue with Turkish President Erdogan and many countries including Germany and Russia and have meetings set up to work out “some kind of a plan for peace.”
After the bilateral 2:2 meeting, both Melania and Mareva had lunch together in the parlor of the White House.
