  • [01] President Papoulias receives Greek-American students group

    ANA-MPA - A group of students from the American Hellenic Institute (AHI), headed by the centre's president Nick Larigakis, were received by President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias at the presidential mansion on Tuesday.

    The president congratulated the students, who are of Greek descent, for wanting to learn more about the country their parents and grandparents set out from to create a new life, and invited them to ask questions about national issues and Greek foreign policy.

    "I believe that if the Greek language were as widespread as the English language, Greek poetry would be dominant in the world, with hundreds of poets," Papoulias said, adding about Greeks' outlook, "The Greek people are sensitive not only towards our homeland, but towards others in the world as well who are suffering."

    The AHI president said the programmes aim is to "create future and modern ambassadors of issues in the greater (geographic) area we have been trying to promote in the United States for many years," and the Institute wanted to highlight the important role of Greece and Cyprus in the interests of America and the West.

    Later Papoulias received a delegation of the Pancyprian Association of Parents and Relatives of Undeclared Prisoners and Missing Persons, who briefed him on the actions they are taking and issues they are facing in trying to learn the fate of their family members.
