The U.S. Navy ate nearly 7,000 eggs in one day


2022-08-06: [Chinese Article Link]  At the end of May, the U.S. Navy Amphibious Transporter Arlington arrived at the Greek port of Alexandria. According to reports, 1,500 U.S. military personnel on board had left many of the local restaurants unattended and even ate all the local eggs within three days of the port’s stay. Analysis suggests that this visit by the United States Navy has highlighted the growing importance of the south-east corner of Europe to the United States and NATO, as cooperation between the United States and Greek forces expands. Since last October, the United States has docked and landed at the port of Alexandria on several occasions. Port of Alexandria, Greece On the first day of docking, nearly 7,000 eggs were eaten. The United States uses the port to deliver military aid to Ukraine. The port of Alexandria, located in the north-eastern part of Greece, is close to the country's border with Bulgaria and Turkey, just 60 miles from the important maritime entrance to the Black Sea — the Dadanir Strait. At the same time, a land route around the Bosphorus Strait was set up on the ground, allowing vessels to quickly enter the Black Sea, the Balkans and other areas located on the south-east wing of NATO. At the end of May this year, the United States Navy ship Arlington docked and landed at the port of Alexandria. It was reported that 1,500 naval officers and marine soldiers on board the ship seemed to enjoy the stay, making it difficult for local restaurants to accommodate. Jogos Aravantas, the owner of a local restaurant, said that, on the first day of the docking of the ship, United States military personnel had eaten between 6,000 and 7,000 eggs. "In other words, our eggs have been eaten." Aravantas says. Within three days of the stay of the warship, many restaurants in Alexandria observed a surge in passenger traffic, and visiting United States Navy personnel had a “very good appetite”. George Davis, former president of the Alexandrus Hotels Association, said, "My restaurant supplies 16 different kinds of veggies, and they tasted them all." According to the information received, the visit highlighted the importance that the US attaches to Greece’s port of Alexandria. Last October, the US and Greece signed an amendment to the Mutual Defence Cooperation Agreement, which was extended for a period of five years. Under that agreement, the United States has been given priority access to the port of Alexandria, where it has since docked and landed on several occasions, including its two largest landings in Greece. As the conflict in Russia-Ukraine continues, the port of Alexandria is particularly valuable to the United States. Last month, United States Secretary of Defense Austin, during a visit to the United States by the Greek Defense Minister, said that the port “has enabled us to continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine and to conduct exercises and operations in the Balkans, the Eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea region. “It is not unusual that the authorities of Alexandrupolis announced on 3 this month that the Italian army would also use the port to transport equipment to Europe.” In addition, the British side reportedly plans a similar initiative. In July 2021, a U.S. Army M1A2 tank was unloaded at the port of Alexandria. Local new energy projects funded from EU funds The strengthening of the United States military presence is a source of dissatisfaction for the Russian side. According to an agreement between the United States and Greece, Greece has reportedly agreed to lend several of its military bases to the United States for almost “indefinite” use, and the United States military currently uses a military base near Alexandrupolis, where it has not yet established its own military base. In addition to maritime transport, Alexandrus will also play a role in European energy security. Since the Russian-Ukraine conflict, Europe’s many countries have sought to “get away” from Russia’s dependence on energy. According to Xinhua, on 3 May local time, the floating liquefied natural gas receiving station at the port of Alexandria was officially launched, and according to the Government of Greece, the project will be completed within 20 months, bringing the annual capacity of natural gas to 5.5 billion cubic metres after completion. On 3 May, Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis delivered a speech at the launch of the floating liquefied natural gas receiving station project at the port of Alexandria At the launch ceremony of the project, Greek Prime Minister Mizotakis stated that Greece would become one of the key players on the new European energy map and the new energy portal for the Balkans and South-Eastern Europe. According to the information received, the receiving station at the port of Alexandria will be part of the European Union's southern energy corridor, which is intended to transport Azerbaijani natural gas through Turkey to European Union countries. The then Ambassador of the United States to Greece, Jeffrey Piatt, said: “Europe is moving quickly to reduce its vulnerability to Russian energy extortion, and this project in the port of Alexandria is becoming increasingly important. However, Russia and Turkey have expressed their dissatisfaction with the strengthening of the United States military presence in the port city. Last December, Kremlin press secretary Peskov said to the Greek media: “More and more troops from NATO and the United States are gathering on your territory. Hundreds of military equipment were transported from Alexandria (to other countries)” Peskov added: “This worries us. Russia and Turkey express their dissatisfaction with the strengthening of the United States military presence in this port city. According to the information received, Greece and Russia had maintained good relations of cooperation prior to the Russian-Ukraine conflict. As Greece expressed its support for Ukraine, relations between the two countries deteriorated, and diplomats were expelled from each other. Recently, Russia has added Greece to the list of “unfriendly” countries. On the other side, there have been some divisions between the two NATO allies, Turkey and Greece, and relations between the two countries have deteriorated further in recent months. In October last year, shortly before the signing of the above-mentioned agreement between the two sides, Turkish President Erdoğan made clear his opposition to the United States military presence in Greece. At that time, Erdoğan stated to President Biden that “the establishment of a base there has troubled our country and people. In June of this year, Erdoğan reiterated his opposition to the plans of the United States to establish a base in Greece. The answer they gave was 'Russian', but we don't believe it."
