In a post about the visit of the American senators, the US ambassador to Greece, Geoffrey Pyatt, stated that the base of Souda is the crown jewel of the military cooperation between Greece and the USA. According to a statement from the base administration, the senators were received by Captain Michael Mosi and then briefed and toured the base facilities.
