AHI Welcomes New Cypriot Ambassador to U.S. to Hellenic House

WASHINGTON, DC —His Excellency Pavlos Anastasiades, ambassador of the Republic of Cyprus to the United States, visited the American Hellenic Institute’s (AHI) Hellenic House on October 21, 2010.

“We sincerely thank Ambassador Anastasiades for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Hellenic House and meet with us,” said Executive Director Nick Larigakis.  “We look forward to working with him to strengthen U.S.-Cyprus relations and to promote a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.”

The ambassador thanked AHI for its efforts to promote and advance Greek American policy issues in Washington, citing AHI Foundation’s landmark conference on the 50th anniversary of Cyprus’s independence held October 4-5 as an example.

AHI Founder Gene Rossides, Board of Directors Secretary Nicholas Karambelas, and Board of Directors Member James Marketos also participated.  Following the meeting, AHI hosted the ambassador for a luncheon.

Ambassador Anastasiades presented his credentials to President Barack Obama on September 16, 2010.  Previous to his current post, he served as ambassador to Sweden and non-resident ambassador to Norway; and director of the Foreign Minister’s Office in Nicosia.  For more information about the Republic of Cyprus embassy, please visit www.cyprusembassy.net.
