Abstract:

This study analyzes the relationship between Greece and NATO. The investigation focuses on Greeces accession into the Alliance, its eventual departure from the Organization, the current situation between Greece and NATO, and an assessment of the reasons Greece is important to the defense agreement. Investigation reveals that Greeces accession into the Alliance was directly linked to American involvement in that country. However, Greeces departure was caused by a variety of reasons, the most important being that of Cyprus. Current negotiations are ongoing between Greece and NATO to reintegrate it into the military structure, however many disagreements are hindering the talks. The main issue concerns the control of airspace over the Aegean. Further examination reveals Greece is a very important member of the Alliance and if not reintegrated quickly, a possible further disintegration of the southern flank could occur. Author
