CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

AHEPA, U.S. Ambassador Pyatt Discuss U.S.-Greece Relations
U.S. Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt and Supreme President
George G. Horiates discussed the latest developments in U.S.Greece relations in a call held July 24, 2020.
"We sincerely thank Ambassador Pyatt for the generous time
afforded us," Supreme President Horiates said. "The United States
and Greece are experiencing the 'Golden Years' of their enduring
relationship. Along with strong military and strategic cooperation,
growth in energy and tech sectors are positive developments, vital
to the interests of both countries. As it has for nearly a century,
AHEPA is proud to serve as a bridge between the two nations,
lending its support to the flourishing relationship."
When asked about Turkey's stated plans to survey for natural
resources in areas over which Greece and Cyprus assert jurisdiction in the Eastern Mediterranean, Ambassador Pyatt responded,
"We urge Turkish authorities to halt any plans for operations and to avoid steps that raise tensions in the region. Such actions are
provocative and raise tensions in the region. Resource development in the Eastern Mediterranean should promote cooperation and
provide a foundation for durable energy security and economic prosperity throughout the region."

American Hellenic, American Jewish Groups Pleased with
Pipeline's Go-Ahead, Recent Developments
AHEPA, the American Hellenic Institute (AHI), B'nai B'rith
International, and the Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations issued the following statement
on July 23, 2020:
Our organizations are pleased the much anticipated Eastern
Mediterranean pipeline received its final green light with the
approval of the Israeli government. The cooperation amongst
Israel, Greece, Cyprus, plus Italy, will help Europe to diversify
its energy supply. The approval demonstrates the strengthening of ties and the significant progress the trilateral alliance has
achieved in energy cooperation and the three countries' leadership in the region to provide energy security, which our groups
wholeheartedly welcome.
Separately, we welcome as another positive indicator
that bilateral relations between Greece and Israel in defense
and security cooperation continues to grow. This month, the

24 | THE AHEPAN ยท Fall 2020	

Hellenic Parliament ratified a defense agreement with Israel,
and the heads of Greek and Israeli militaries met to discuss
deepening ties.
We look forward to the next trilateral summit to be held
in Nicosia, Cyprus, as announced following June's meeting
between the foreign ministers of Israel and Cyprus.
Finally, we are pleased to see legislative measures advancing
through Congress that encourages and bolsters U.S. engagement
with the Eastern Mediterranean partnership between Israel,
Greece, and Cyprus, and we anticipate their passage.
We applaud the commitment to fostering peace, security,
stability, and shared democratic values and ideals, in the region
by all parties. We are pleased the relationship continues to progress across all sectors. We will continue to lend our broad diaspora support and encouragement for advancing the trilateral
partnership and the United States' commitment to it.
