Greece’s parliament approved the renewal and amendment of a defence cooperation agreement with the United States on Thursday, days before Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visits Washington.

The agreement, an amendment to a prior deal signed in 2019, was approved by a majority of 181 MPs, including the ruling conservative party and the socialists.

Mitsotakis told parliament the agreement shields the country against security threats, will allow an upgrade of military facilities and is a vote of confidence for Greece, which is becoming an energy hub in the region after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
