Menendez signed for Greek F-35s and Sent a Deterrence Message to Turkiye
Bob Menendez, the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee in the United States Senate, has made public statements about the F-35s that Greece has, and he has also spoken about the presence of the United States in Greece as a means of preventing an attack by Turkiye against Greece.
Bob Menendez made the following statement while speaking at the Delphi Economic Forum:“I am happy that two days ago I signed for the F35 of the Hellenic Republic, and I did it not because I am simply a fan of the Greek people. I did it because this is a country that shares our values, that is aligned with us on things that are important in the world like democracy, human rights, the rule of law, a country that is not hostile to its neighbours. But when a country does the exact opposite of that, then yes, I have a problem agreeing to that kind of sale.”Additionally, Menendez communicated to Ankara the possibility of a military response from the United States if Greece came under attack. “Greece did nothing to provoke Turkey,” Menendez said.
