AHI Applauds Senior Foreign Affairs Committee Member’s Report on Hellenic Issues

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), a senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, issued a Congressional Report on Hellenic Issues last week to AHI President Nick Larigakis.  Rep. Sherman is also a longtime member of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues.

In his report, Rep. Sherman outlines his position on three key issues: 1) Cypriot Reunification, 2) Support for the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, and 3) Support for Greek Cypriot Rights in the Exclusive Economic Zone.  He also conveys his support of a “strong U.S.-Greek relationship.”

“We applaud Congressman Sherman for his strong, unwavering support of issues that are important to the Greek American community,” President Larigakis said.  “His firm grasp of the issues is clearly evident in his congressional report.  We thank him for the positions he has taken, and we look forward to continuing to work with him to advance the issues in Congress.”

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