US CONGRESS H.R.4347, Billerakis, Cyprus and Halki

US CONGRESS H.R.4347 will be amended to include H.Res.188 which is Congressman Gus Bilirakis of Florida's resolution calling upon Turkey to facilitate the reopening of the Ecumenical Patriarchate's Theological School of Halki without condition or further delay.

We urge you to contact members of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee and ask them to support H.R.4347, as amended, which demands Turkish accountability for the return, protection, and restoration of stolen and confiscated Christian properties in Turkey and in Turkish-occupied Cyprus; and calls for the reopening of the Halki Seminary.
