This week’s developments on the lifting of the Arms Embargo is applauded by all members of AHEPA. For decades we have advocated and championed the Hellenic and Cyprus causes. Many members over the past 33 years have dedicated their time and efforts and today is a significant step for the Hellenes of the Worldwide diaspora. From endless meetings, both in the United States and abroad, to countless communications of members in the here and now, and those whose shoulders we stand on, show that we can and are making a difference.

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 combatting 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.”

In April, AHEPA wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting for 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 articles.

In a world of instant gratification, let it be known that the side of justice, over time, always will prevail.

AHEPA empowers its members to lead on the international stage to address the issues Turkey and its bellicose actions cause. Ahepans are problem-solvers and peace seekers.  Ahepans go and meet and have frank discussions with those whom we have differences. Because Ahepans truly lead. These reasons and many more are reason enough to be an active, hard working member of AHEPA.

AHEPA works to promote and preserve Hellenism, we maintain scholastic chairs across the globe, purchase service dogs for vets, award over $2 Million in scholarships, fight the fight for Cyprus & Greece, promote athleticism, sponsor our youth for 6 college credit in Greece, entice members of Congress to join the Hellenic caucus, preserve history in the archives, support philanthropic deeds and some much more.

Today, Turkey is the problem, tomorrow who knows. AHEPA’s mission is clear, we preserve our history, legacy, and Defend Hellenism. In addition to wildfire and hurricane relief, and so many other programs, all we ask is for you to be a hard working member, and find a member to work along side you as we try to make a difference, now more than ever.

Redouble your efforts on membership. Redouble your efforts on civic engagement. Do it now.

We are not a broken record. AHEPA makes a difference.


George G. Horiates

Supreme President
