The US proposes to include the provision of the deployment of American troops in several dozen military facilities in the country in the new defense agreement with Greece, instead of updating the agreement every five years, writes referring to Greek newspapers, noting that it will be the second renewed agreement on mutual defense cooperation within three years.

The agreement includes the expansion of the US base, the provision of infrastructure to the United States at the bases of Stefanovikio, Larissa and Alexandroupoli, as well as the possibility of using any military facility in its territory in agreement with Greece.

Speaking in parliament in October 2020, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias announced that Greece intends to expand its defense agreement with the United States or sign a new one.
