WASHINGTON, DC — Ekathimerini, a daily newspaper published in Athens, Greece, published an interview with American Hellenic Institute (AHI) President Nick Larigakis, January 15, 2018, on the occasion of the Institute’s joint three-country International Leadership Mission with Greek American and Jewish American community leaders to Greece, Cyprus and Israsel. The article, “Greece among US’s ‘most dependable’ East Med allies,” also appeared in Kathimerini’s English print edition, which is inserted as a supplement to the international edition of the New York Times in Greece and Cyprus. President Larigakis gave a preview of the Mission and Washington’s perspective of the trilateral partnership and discussed other Greek American policy issues with Kathimerini Senior International Correspondent Tom Ellis.
“…in order to be able to project effectively its interests in the region, the US needs to have allies and partners in the region that share the same values and concerns; dependable allies that provide a front line for the advancement of democratic principles and that help to promote peace and stability in this important region,” Larigakis said. “Greece, Israel and Cyprus are countries that fit this description.”
The American Hellenic Institute is an independent non-profit Greek American public policy center and think tank that works to strengthen relations between the United States and Greece and Cyprus, and within the Greek American community.
