Ambassador Of Cyprus Delivers Remarks On Cyprus' EU Accession At AHI Christmas Open House

WASHINGTON, DC -- On Friday, December 13, 2002, the American Hellenic Institute (AHI) hosted its annual Christmas Open House at Hellenic House (1220 16th Street, NW).The event provided a special opportunity for guests to celebrate the accession of the Republic of Cyprus to the European Union (EU), which occurred earlier that day at the EU's Copenhagen Summit.

During the event, Ambassador of Cyprus to the U.S. Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis expressed her gratitude to AHI for its longstanding commitment to the issues involving Cyprus, including the country's EU accession bid. While Cyprus' accession to the EU was an historic event, Ambassador Kozakou-Marcoullis noted that the continued commitment and involvement of AHI and the community at-large was essential in bringing about the reunification of Cyprus and an end to Turkish occupation.
