The US Ambassador to Greece, Geoffrey Pyatt, visited the chief of the Hellenic Defence General Staff (GEETHA) yesterday, according to the Kathimerini.


Their meeting focused on developments in the broader region, as well as on the recent continued detention of two Greek soldiers by Turkish authorities and Greek-American ties.  The visit also comes amid an increased US naval presence in the Eastern Mediterranean, which is seen as a response to Turkey’s recent hostility towards oil exploration efforts in the region.


Pyatt has been the US’s ambassador to Greece since 2016.
