The new US military base in Alexandroupolis is ready

It is reported that the new US military base in Alexandroupoli will be operational in the coming weeks.

According to local media reports, preparations have been completed in the "Yannuli Barracks" allocated to the US army by Greece.

In the news, which stated that the barracks are "ready to host the first NATO soldiers in the coming weeks," it was emphasized that the barracks are 20 kilometers away from the Turkish border in a "straight line".

"Türkiye is uncomfortable with the fact that the Americans are not only using Alexandroupolis Port to ship tanks, helicopters and military ammunition to the Balkans, but also that the first NATO base in the region will be operational," the report said. 

According to the Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement signed between Athens and Washington last year, the "Georgula Barracks" in Volos and the shooting range in Litohoru were allocated to the USA as well as Yannuli Barracks.

Within the scope of the agreement, the expansion of the existing US base "Suda" on the island of Crete is also envisaged.
