As ties between the U.S. and Turkey have turned sour, relations between the U.S. and Greece are warming rapidly.

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross arrived Friday in Thessaloniki along with a bevy of American officials and U.S. companies for an international trade fair.

In all, 50 U.S. companies — including top brands Coca-Cola, Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Lockheed Martin — are exhibiting at this year’s international trade fair in the northern Greek city. The U.S. is featured as the honored country at the fair — a title reflecting rapidly warming ties between Washington and Athens.
