“We are pleased to announce our support and participation at a major international conference that brings together thought-leaders to continue the dialogue about the geopolitical significance of the Eastern Mediterranean,” Larigakis said. “We thank JISS and B’nai B’rith International for organizing the conference. It is yet another example of the ongoing cooperation between diaspora groups in support of the trilateral relationship between Greece, Cyprus, and Israel.”
