Senior Foreign Policy Legislator Submits Policy Platform to AHI

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), a senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and a longtime member of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues, submitted his foreign policy platform on issues of importance to the Greek-American community to the American Hellenic Institute (AHI).

Congressman Sherman’s platform provides policy positions on each of the following issue areas: U.S. relations with Greece and Cyprus, the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea, Frontline States: Greece, Cyprus, and Israel; Religious Freedom for the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and issues related to Turkey.

“We sincerely thank Congressman Sherman for addressing the Greek American community’s policy concerns, and we are pleased to share it with the community as a public service,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said.

Congressman Sherman has described his desire to be the next Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, including at AHI’s virtual forum to commemorate the 46th anniversary of Turkey’s invasion of the Republic of Cyprus.

According to AHI Legislative Director Elias Gerasoulis, AHI maintains an active collaboration with members on both sides of the aisle of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Congressman Sherman’s platform submission is evidence of its collaboration.
