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.”
Meng also brought Stacy Bliagos, Executive Director of HANAC, as her guest for the speech. Bliagos’ support of the Greek-American community is shown through her work at HANAC, a nonprofit, social services organization serving communities in need throughout New York City. The organization was founded in Queens in 1972 to serve the needs of the Greek-American community.
