AHI Action Alert Urges Support For Cyprus
Accession To The EU

On June 6, 2002, the American Hellenic Institute (AHI) released an action alert urging AHI members and friends to support H.Con.Res.164. Introduced by Rep. Michael Bilirakis (R-FL), the legislation expresses the support of the U.S. for the accession of Cyprus to the European Union (EU) with or without a political settlement. As of June 12, 2002, 75 members of Congress had signed on as co-sponsors of this important resolution.

It is important that the U.S. government forcefully support the accession of Cyprus to the EU. A significant deadline looms on October 17, 2002, when the EU Council Enlargement Working Group will meet in Brussels to adopt a formal timeline for the accession of the "Helsinki six" to the EU. Congressional support for H.Con.Res.164 is central in light of the October 17, 2002 deadline, and Congress must sound its unequivocal support for Cyprus' accession to the EU in the months ahead.

Following are AHI's (1) action alert and (2) the list of current co-sponsors. For additional information, including a copy of H.Con.Res.164, please contact Chrysoula Economopoulos at (202) 785-8430 or  [email protected].
