New American DCM to Cyprus Visits Hellenic House

WASHINGTON, DC — Mr. Andrew J. Schofer, new deputy chief of mission, U.S. Embassy in Cyprus, visited American Hellenic Institute’s (AHI’s) Hellenic House on July 6, 2011.

“We were pleased to welcome DCM Schofer to Hellenic House,” said AHI President Nick Larigakis. “We look forward to working with him to strengthen U.S. relations with Cyprus.”

Cyprus’ geostrategic importance and the United States’ position on the current status of settlement negotiations were among topics discussed.

U.S. Department of State Cyprus Desk Officer Adam Scarlatelli accompanied DCM Schofer.

AHI Founder Gene Rossides, Board of Directors Secretary Nick Karambelas, and Demetra Atsaloglou, director, Media Relations and Research Analyst, participated. President Larigakis led the discussion.

The American Hellenic Institute is a non-profit Greek American public policy center that works to strengthen relations between the United States and Greece and Cyprus, and within the Greek American community.
