From the opening statement of Robert Wexler: "It is a special honor to have the Under Secretary here to discuss United States-Greece relations, a relationship I know he cares so deeply about. As the former American Ambassador to Greece, Nick Burns is the foremost expert on Hellenic issues in the Bush administration. No one has greater knowledge about United States- Greece relations, and there is no one better to lead a discussion about further strengthening this long-standing partnership. Like the Under Secretary, I am also a strong supporter of United States-Greece relations, which were forged during World War II, the Cold War, in the Balkans, in operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and now grow stronger as we face common challenges to our security in the form of terrorism, a resurgent al-Qaeda, the proliferation of WMD and the possibility of nuclear weapons in the hands of a rogue Iranian regime." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: R. Nicholas Burns and Robert Wexler.
