Regional energy map discussed in Athens conference
US Ambassador to Greece, Geoffrey Pyatt, reiterated on Monday that Washington will play a vital role in the transformation of the energy map in the Eastern Mediterranean and Greece.
Addressing a conference in Athens titled "Eastern Mediterranean Geopolitical and Energy Developments: The Implications for Regional and European Security," Pyatt said that energy issues have been at the forefront of the agenda of Greek-US bilateral ties, adding that the US is expected to be a "decisive factor" in transforming the energy landscape in the region.
Cypriot Ambassador Kyriakos Kenevezos said his country "is aware of its small size, but that does not mean it has small ambitions and abilities."
"Cyprus is a member of the EU and is present in all regional developments. But, above all, it always wants to be a factor of stability and peace in the region," he added.
