Dear Members, Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues:

We, the Pan-Macedonian Association, the second largest Greek-American organization in the United States, strongly condemn the recent decision by the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to convert Hagia Sophia into a mosque.  This provocative action has been widely criticized by UNESCO, the World Council of Churches, religious and political leaders, academics and historians.  Please see attached letter outlining our position and requesting swift and immediate action by the United States.

Thank you for your attention to this important issue.

Sincerely,


Stelios Kirimlis, President
Ioanna Stasinoulia-Albanes, National Issues Committee
Voula Tsoutsouras, National Issues Committee
