AHI President Speaks at National Hellenic Student Association Conference

WASHINGTON, DC —American Hellenic Institute (AHI) President Nick Larigakis shared his foreign policy expertise with the delegates of the National Hellenic Student Association Conference, April 2, 2016, Baltimore, Md.  

Larigakis discussed the topic “Sovereignty in the Aegean” before an audience of more than 100 students. Larigakis spoke about the violations of Greece’s airspace committed by Turkey over the Aegean Sea.  His remarks also included Turkey’s violations of Greece’s territorial waters, and he explained the differences between infringements and violations of airspace.

 “It was a pleasure to speak to the attendees of the National Hellenic Student Association conference,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said. “The students’ interest in foreign policy as it pertains to Greece and the eastern Mediterranean is commendable.  AHI is pleased to be a resource for the students when it comes to public policy in the eastern Mediterranean.”

U.S. Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD) and Dr. Theodore Kariotis, professor emeritus of Economics at the University System of Maryland, also joined Larigakis on the program.
