US to continue help reduce dependence on Russian gas, US Ambassador to Greece says - TASS

US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt during the Athens Energy Dialogues forum has stated that his country will continue to support major infrastructure projects that will help Europe reduce dependence on Russian gas.

 Statements by the head of the diplomatic mission were published by the embassy’s press service on its website on Wednesday.

The ambassador expressed an opinion that cooperation of the US and Greece should grow stronger, reiterating that "it’s President Biden’s intention to further deepen the U.S.-Greece strategic relationship."

 "We’ve got several pillars of that around our energy cooperation. We’ve talked many times about how important Greece’s role has become as a driver of energy security and energy diversification in Southeastern Europe. I think it’s very important that even during this year of the pandemic, major infrastructure projects like the TAP pipeline (the Trans Adriatic pipeline - TASS), the IGB pipeline with Bulgaria (the Gas Interconnector Greece - Bulgaria - TASS), the floating regassification unit in Alexandroupoli, the new gas connector between Greece and North Macedonia are all moving forward. And these are redrawing the energy map of Europe and helping to reduce dependence on Russian gas, so those are all measures that we will continue to support," he said.
