Members of the AHI Delaware Chapter Meet with Senator Ted Kaufman

WASHINGTON, DC—On May 11, 2009 members of the American Hellenic Institute’s Delaware Chapter met with Senator Ted Kaufman (D-DE) who has been appointed to complete the remaining term of Vice President Joe Biden’s senatorial seat. The meeting took place at the Senator’s office in Wilmington, DE. The AHI Delaware Chapter delegation was lead by President George Moutsatsos and included AHI members Constantine Caras, James Faller, Gus Georgiou, Dean Lomis, Basil Savopoulos, and Peter Yiannos.

The meeting entailed serious discussions regarding the Turkish invasion and continued occupation of Cyprus, Turkish violations of the Hellenic air space over the Aegean Sea, the FYROM name dispute, and religious freedom for the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

“Senator Kaufman emphasized strongly his support for Hellenic issues and expressed his desire to lend his support. The Senator said that he meets with the Vice President on occasion and relays the various matters directly to him,” said AHI-DE President George Moutsatsos.

The meeting closed with Senator Kaufman expressing his desire for the Delaware Greek American community to stay in close contact with him.
