07/21/21 - Rep. Bilirakis tweeted "Yesterday I spoke out against Turkey’s continued military occupation of our ally and EU member state Cyprus. The United States needs to act now to stop Turkey’s escalating and destabilizing actions in the Eastern Mediterranean." View the tweet here.

07/20/21 - Rep. Bilirakis posted the following to Facebook: "Today, Turkish President Erdogan visited Varosha, Cyprus on the 47th anniversary of Turkey's invasion of the island nation. It was a deliberate and provocative move that demonstrates the absolute insanity of how, in the 21st century, a NATO ally can continue to illegally and militarily occupy an EU nation. Tonight, I shared my thoughts on this commemoration in a speech on the House floor. #JusticeforCyprus" View the Facebook post here.

04/29/21 - Rep. Bilirakis posted the following to Facebook: "While I disagree with many of the President’s actions during his first 100 days in office, as they are driving our country further apart, officially recognizing the Armenian Genocide was an important step in the right direction as we work to prevent future persecution around the globe."

04/26/21 - Rep. Bilirakis posted the following to Facebook: "As Co-Chairman of the Congressional Armenian Caucus, I welcomed President Biden’s decision last weekend to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. It has been more than 100 years since the atrocities committed against innocent Armenians and other ethnic and religious minorities at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire’s genocidal campaign from 1915-1923 killed 1.5 million Armenian men, women, and children, as well as Greeks, Assyrians, Chaldeans, and Syricas, through a series of executions and death marches. We must acknowledge the atrocities of the past so that we might hopefully prevent them in the future. Our darkest moments as a human race have come during times when those who knew better stood silently, making excuses for passivity, and allowing injustice and persecution to reign."
