George J. Tsunis, a New York attorney who is personal friend of President Joe Biden, faced confirmation hearings on Wednesday as part of his nomination as the United States Ambassador to Greece.

As part of the hearings, philhellene Senator Bob Menendez introduced Tsunis, stating that “Greece is a critical ally” of the United States at the present time, adding that the country, “as the birthplace of democracy, continues to be a beacon” of democracy in the region.

Addressing the hearings, Tsunis noted that as a first-generation American he was “blessed to live the American Dream,” stating that his parents had “heard Emma Lazarus’ calling” when they emigrated to the US from Greece.

“A way to give back to the country that has given me so much”
