AHI Releases Updated Fact Sheet Detailing Greece’s Contributions to U.S. Security Interests, NATO

WASHINGTON, DC — The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) announced it has released a 2016 update to its fact sheet that details Greece’s contributions to United States interests in the eastern Mediterranean and to NATO. The fact sheet is titled, “Greece: Valued Ally. Strategic Partner.”  

“When it comes down to it, Greece is a proven, reliable, and invaluable ally of the United States and an integral contributor to NATO.  Greece takes its obligations to the Alliance seriously despite enduring two well-chronicled crises, economic and migratory,” President Nick Larigakis said.  “Our fact sheet presents data, provides testimonials from prominent U.S. and NATO officials, and highlights examples of how Greece has contributed to United States security interests and international peacekeeping operations over many decades.  We strongly encourage the community to utilize the fact sheet as an educational tool when speaking or meeting with policymakers and to share it widely.”

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.
