Pyatt, the newly appointed U.S. Consul General in Thessaloniki Mr. Gregory W. Pfleger, Jr., the U.S. Embassy Assistant Secretary of the Educational and Cultural Affairs Ms. Marie Royce, Wisconsin Senator Mr. Ron Johnson, the President of the main opposition party (New Democracy) Mr. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, and the Governor of Central Macedonia Mr. Apostolos Tzitzikostas.
