AHI Participates at Vice President’s Cyprus Debriefing

WASHINGTON, DC — Vice President Joe Biden held a briefing to review the historic visit to Cyprus he took on May 21 and 22, 2014 with Greek American community leaders at which American Hellenic Institute President Nick Larigakis participated.  The briefing took place June 6, 2014 at the Vice President Ceremonial Office, Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

“We thank Vice President Biden for meeting with community leaders for a second time in over a month about his visit to Cyprus,” Larigakis said. “During discussion, I raised several key points about Cyprus for their consideration and in the best interests of the United States.  Both briefings were productive and informative, and I am hopeful that the vice president will continue to be actively engaged on Cyprus going forward.”

Vice President Biden held a similar briefing prior to departing to Cyprus at which President Larigakis also participated on May 16, 2014.

The American Hellenic Institute is a non-profit Greek American think tank and public policy center that works to strengthen relations between the United States and Greece and Cyprus, and within the Greek American community.
