CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY
Congressman's
Visit to Occupied
Cyprus via Illegal
Entry Condemned
Supreme President Savas Tsivicos
issued the following August 4, 2023,
statement:
" We condemn the visit to Turkishoccupied
northern Cyprus via an illegal
port of entry of an airport in the north
from Turkey by U.S. Representative Pete
Sessions (R-TX) on August 3, 2023.
" This is an act inconsistent with
international law and violates the sovereignty
of the Republic of Cyprus, an EU
country and U.S. strategic partner.
" The legal way to visit occupied
Cyprus is through the Republic of
Cyprus. Visits to the occupied area must
be conducted via this procedure and
process.
" Sessions, who serves on a subcommittee
with oversight over the United
States' own borders and foreign affairs,
should be more aware of the implications
of such actions that violate international
law and the sovereignty of a
nation.
" Moreover, we hesitate to believe
Congressman Sessions would visit
Crimea via a flight from Russia. His
visit to Turkish-occupied Cyprus from
Turkey is no different.
" We raised this alarming matter with
Speaker of the House of Representatives
Kevin McCarthy and called for the
Speaker to hold Congressman Sessions
accountable.
" Finally, we call on Congressman
Sessions to issue a statement that takes
responsibility for this unhelpful and
unlawful action. "
U.S. Senator Cardin Presented with
2023 Pericles Award
AHEPA presented U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) with the 2023 AHEPA Pericles Award
during AHEPA's annual Capitol Hill Day, June 15, 2023. Senator Cardin announced his
retirement and will serve out the remainder of his term.
Then-Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas presented the award. Chairman of the
Board Nicholas Karacostas, PSP, and then-Supreme Secretary Savas Tsivicos accompanied
him.
AHEPA bestowed Senator Cardin with the honor in recognition of his six decades
of excellence in public service, for having served with integrity, and for championing
human rights, especially as a vital component of American foreign policy.
The Ahepans also held a short discussion about developments in the Eastern
Mediterranean with Senator Cardin, who is a senior member of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee.
" We could not have asked for a better public servant to succeed Senator Paul
Sarbanes and hold his seat in the Senate, " Kokotas said. " We congratulate Senator
Cardin on an outstanding career in public service, commend him for his unwavering
commitment to human rights and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. "
