  • [01] FAMAGUSTA MAYOR - USA

    Famagusta Municipality delegation, under Mayor Alexis Galanos, is on a five day visit to the United States in an effort to further promote the cause of the citizens of Famagusta for the return of their home town, which is under Turkish occupation since 1974. During a meeting the delegation had in Washington with members of the US Congress, Galanos briefed them on the issue and made special reference to the 26.000 signatures gathered by Famagusta citizens on a declaration, expressing the determination of the people of Famagusta to struggle for the return to their town in the context of a campaign for Famagusta.

    Galanos requested the help of the US Congress and Administration towards this goal. The issue was extensively discussed during a business lunch the delegation had with a number of Congressmen, including Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Shelley Berkley, Carolyn Maloney, Nita Lowey, Donald Payne, Gus Bilirakis, John Sarbanes, Zack Space and Frank Pallone.

    Galanos and the other members of the delegation briefed the members of Congress about the latest development regarding Cyprus problem. During the gathering a short film of Famagusta was projected. In a speech at AHI, he stressed that the citizens of Famagusta have signed declaration which expresses their strong desire and determination to struggle for the return of their home town after 33 years of occupation. He also said that he considers of outmost importance the promotion of the signatures obtained during the campaign for the return of Famagusta to its lawful citizens.
