AHI Co-hosts Dinner for Greece’s Foreign Minister in Washington

WASHINGTON, DC — The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) co-hosted a private dinner in honor of Foreign Minister of Greece Nikos Kotzias, with the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), April 21, 2015, on the occasion of the foreign minister’s visit to Washington, DC.

“We thank Foreign Minister Kotzias for taking the time from his busy agenda in Washington, to join us for an in-depth discussion on issues of importance to the relationship between longtime allies, the United States and Greece,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said. “Greece continues to face many challenges, and we will continue to explore initiatives that will help to strengthen between the United States and Greece.”

Foreign Minister Kotzias was accompanied by Ambassador of Greece to the U.S. Christos Panagopoulos and the foreign minister’s staff. Supreme President Phillip Frangos and Chairman of the Board Nicholas Karacostas represented the AHEPA.

“Undoubtedly, Greece is a proven, reliable, and invaluable ally of the United States, an integral contributor to NATO, and an crucial player to ensure the security of the region,” Larigakis said.

The American Hellenic Institute is a 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.
