Additions[edit]

Ahem, the section dedicated to this in the article Foreign relations of Greece has much more on this topic. Perhaps that information could be added here? Contralya 13:22, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Proposed Contributions[edit]

The article on Greece-United States relations has some interesting information but is in general poorly cited. Within the first introductory paragraph, there are statements about when the two countries first became alliances, or established connections which is not referenced. The Section on Historical Ties is fairly weak and could use much expanding. Creating a more chronological order out of the information already present, and updating information to be well cited will add much to this section. Using sources from the US Dept. of State, and the Hellenic Republic could strengthen this history section

  1. US Relations with Greece. Oct 2012. U.S. Dept. of State. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/3395.htm
  2. US-Greece Relations and Regional Issues. Nov 2007. U.S. Dept. of State Archives. http://2001-2009.state.gov/p/us/rm/2007/95201.htm

Under the Trade and Foreign Investment section, there are claims of Greek exports the US receives but there are no sources to support this. One of the articles above includes such support [1] [2]

The Military Collaboration section has some interesting information with two citations for the entirety of this section. However, the only information presented dates back to 1990, which is not quite sufficient. There should be an inclusion of military collaboration stemming from previous wars like WWI and WWII, to the most recent events. [3] [4]

Diplomatic Representation is summarized well, in terms of identifying the presence of each country in common forums, however there is a lack of citation here as well. This I can further research.

Greek-American community focuses on the Greek community present in America, as well as Greek Lobbying, however both of these can be expanded more. It would be beneficial to include the community or presence of US Americans in Greece as well to eliminate the one-sided perspective. This section could tie greatly into my intercultural communication knowledge in terms of distinguishing differences between cultures and how they communicated interpersonally. [5] [6]

relations are horrible[edit]

americans stop pushing your relations with every country, no body gives a f... , you would like to have good relations with greece but the thing is they hate you because of macedonia, kosovo and cypress issues. --Alismani (talk) 12:02, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
