Washington.- Recently, U.S. Senator George V. Voinovich (R-OH) met with Nicholas A. Karacostas, President of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), to discuss issues important to the association. Among the topics discussed was Greece’s interest in participating in the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Sen. Voinovich is aware of Greece’s interest in the VWP because in October, he travelled to Athens and met with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou and other officials about Greece’s potential participation in the VWP. Following those meetings, Sen. Voinovich wrote AHEPA President Karacostas to express his hope that Greece will be admitted to the VWP in the near future, and reiterated that sentiment in their recent meeting.
