AHI Welcomes U.S.-Greece-Israel Military Exercise 

WASHINGTON, DC — The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) welcomes the start of the two-week trilateral naval exercise “Noble Dina 2014” between the United States, Greece, and Israel. The multinational exercise is held in the eastern Mediterranean off of the Greek island of Crete.

“We welcome the continued trilateral military cooperation exhibited between the United States, Greece, and Israel,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said. “Clearly it demonstrates the significant value of Greece as a pivotal ally to the United States that lends stability and security in the eastern Mediterranean through NSA Souda Bay, Crete as well as a reliable ally to Israel in the region.  Noble Dina enhances the cooperation between the navies of the three countries.”

Noble Dina is the fourth exercise conducted by the United States, Greece, and Israel. According to the U.S. Navy, the exercise involves the U.S. 6th Fleet and hundreds of military personnel deployed on advanced surface ships, air assets and submarines.

The American Hellenic Institute is a non-profit Greek American public policy center and think tank that works to strengthen relations between the United States and Greece and Cyprus, and within the Greek American community.
