AHEPA applauds the Trump administration’s decision to waive the limitations placed on the transfer of non-lethal arms equipment to the Republic of Cyprus for one year, announced Supreme President George G. Horiates.

“We commend the Trump administration for recognizing it is in the best interest of the United States to take this action that further enhances relations between the United States and the Republic of Cyprus,” Supreme President George G. Horiates said. “The United States recognizes the Republic of Cyprus as a strategic partner, especially in combating terrorism and providing regional stability, and this partial lifting of the prohibition of arms is the next logical step in the relationship’s progression that began with 2018’s Statement of Intent agreement.”

He added, “The importance and significance of this decision by the United States at a time when tensions in the Aegean are escalated cannot be understated.”

In April, Supreme President Horiates wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting him to exercise his authority granted by Executive Order to waive the limitations placed on the Republic of Cyprus by U.S. law, thus allowing for the transfer of defense articles.

Supreme President Horiates also thanked members of Congress, especially Senator Robert Menendez, for championing the lifting of the arms prohibition on the Republic of Cyprus on Capitol Hill, and he commended the community for its advocacy.

“Together, we are making a difference with our civic engagement,” Horiates said.
