AHEPA Supreme Pres. Horiates’ Letter to Trump Condemns Turkey’s Provocations, Calls for Sanctions

WASHINGTON DC – George G. Horiates, the Supreme President of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (Order of AHEPA), wrote a letter on behalf of the members of the Order to President Trump conveying the organization’s ‘alarm and grave concern’ about Turkey’s aggression towards Greece in the Aegean. 

In the letter, Mr. Horiates urged the President to encourage Secretary of State Pompeo to advise the Turkish government to stop their hostile behavior in the region. He also reiterated the notion that Turkey is ‘not an ally’ of the United States as its ‘warlike actions invading the sovereignty and territorial boundaries of Greece and Cyprus increased tension in the region and is being met with disdain by many of [the U.S.’s] allies.’ 

Calling Turkey’s actions ‘abhorrent and indefensible,’ Mr. Horiates asked the Administration to:

1. ‘[C]ondemn and prevent Turkey from further actions in the Aegean that violate all international norms.’

2. ‘[I]mpose sanctions on Turkey.’

The full text of the letter follows:
