Abstract. The article tackles the problem of balance between Atlanticism and Europeanism in Greece's foreign policy. Through the prism of security challenges, it examines the evolution of Greece's strategic partnership with the USA and its deep engagement with the European integration process. The author comes to a conclusion that if the EU evolves into a strong political actor with its own foreign and security policy tools, it will potentially strengthen the European trend in Greece's foreign policy. 

Keywords: foreign policy, Greece, Euro-Atlantic partnership, European Union, NATO, security
