American Hellenic Institute Releases
WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, the American Hellenic Institute (AHI) released the 2002 Greek American Policy Statements (click here). The Policy Statementsset forth the positions on the issues of concern to Greek Americans based on what is in the best interests of the U.S.
The Policy Statements highlight the significant changes taking place in the political, security and economic landscape of Southeast Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. They stress the strategic importance of Greece and Cyprus as regional partners of the U.S. As vigorous, prosperous and stable democracies, they are a source of regional leadership and they offer the U.S. an opportunity to advance its national interests in the region. The Policy Statements also call on the U.S. government:
The Policy Statements describe recent efforts to bring an end to the Cyprus problem. Also emphasized is H.Con.Res.164, a House resolution declaring U.S. support for Cyprus' entry into the European Union with or without a settlement of the Cyprus problem. Executive Director Nick Larigakis is coordinating efforts with Greek American membership organizations to add co-sponsors to the current list of Representatives supporting H.Con.Res. 164. To date, there are 78 co-sponsors.
