The US has given its support to the Greek government’s recent decision to expel two Russian diplomats following recent accusations that they meddled in domestic affairs and attempting to assert more authority in the Balkans following the recent deal struck between the prime ministers of Greece and FYROM.


A brief statement from the US State Department’s Heather Nauert simply said: “We support Greece defending its sovereignty. Russia must end its destabilizing behaviour”.Alternate Foreign Minister Giorgos Katrougalos told Reuters that while Russia is a friendly country with which Greece has good historical relations, he said that Athens had to react to what it considered to “breach of the obligations under international law of the diplomatic activities in our country”.
