US: Greek-American community calls for Biden’s intervention to stop Erdogan’s plans in Cyprus

Joint letter by the largest Greek-American organizations on the occasion of the 47th anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus

In a joint letter signed by major Greek-American organizations, Greek leaders in the United States are urging President Joe Biden to send a clear message to Turkey that Washington will not tolerate further abuse of its sovereignty.

The letter was prompted by the upcoming 47th anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, with Greek leaders taking the opportunity to express to President Biden their concern about the new and the renewed threats facing Cyprus from Tayyip Erdogan.

The presidents of the ten Greek-American organizations point out that UN Security Council Resolution 550 (1984) explicitly states that any attempt to change the status of Varosha requires the transfer of the region to the United Nations.

In addition, they remind President Biden that the US government reaffirmed its support on October 9, 2020, as it approved the statement of the President of the United Nations Security Council and asked Turkey to withdraw all its plans for Varosha.

In light of this, they are urging the United States to use its position as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council to urge the United Nations to exercise its sovereignty over Varosha.
