The International Coordinating Committee “Justice for Cyprus” (PSEKA) held its 31st Annual Cyprus and Hellenic Leadership Conference June 3-5 in Washington, DC. Conference participants met with high level administration officials who formulate U.S. policy toward Cyprus, Greece and Turkey.
According to its website, http://news.pseka.net “The International Coordinating Committee “Justice for Cyprus”, also known as PSEKA, was founded in 1975 by the late President of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios. The organizatio, with headquarters in Nicosia, Cyprus, has chapters all over the world. Its North American headquarters are located in New York City. Today PSEKA is staffed by professionals and volunteers working together in cities all over the United States and Canada. Over the last 2 years, PSEKA and its Board of Directors has begun a push via the Internet, to raise awareness over the plight of the people of Cyprus.”
“Our mission remains the pursuit of a just and viable solution to the Cyprus Problem, which will see the people of Cyprus free from the tyranny of an invading force – that of the Turkish Armed Forces – which occupies over 35% of its territory. While the history of the conflict between Turkey and Cyprus is rooted in the 60’s and 70’s, the repercussions of that conflict has definitely spilled over to the new millenium.”
