Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras painted an optimistic vision Saturday night of a Greece that has emerged from eight years of financial austerity imposed by creditors and is on the road to economic recovery."We would like to see other NATO countries fulfill their engagements in the same way," he said.Outlining his achievements, Tsipras said 300,000 new jobs have been added in the three years since he took power at the depth of Greece's economic crisis and that the long-declining economy is expected to grow 2.5 percent in 2018 .The Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford visited Greece earlier in the week, and said that he discussed the possibility of expanded base access for the U.S. military in Greece as well as training cooperation.
