Meng Issues Statement on Greek PM’s Address to Joint Session of Congress

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY), a member of the Congressional Hellenic Caucus and Vice Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, on May 17 attended Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ address to a joint session of Congress.

“It was an honor to listen to the Prime Minister as he delivered an historic address to Congress on the strength of the U.S.-Greece relationship,” said Meng. “The U.S. and Greece share a special bond. As the Prime Minister said, we must commit to continuing to strengthen the relationship between our two great countries as we stand for democracy around the world. I look forward to doing all I can to strengthen this relationship even further, and I thank Prime Minister Mitsotakis for coming to Washington and addressing Congress. I was proud to be in attendance for it.”

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
