Just now I encounter a word in a speech and I do not know what it means. Would any give me a favor? Here is the sentence:

"These made Euripi a unifued and reliable partner." Does the word Euripi mean Europe? Any explanation to the source of the word will be greatly appreaciated.

@Candery,

It must be a company name. Otherwise, bad spelling or typing.

@Candery,
Could the word have been misheard?

European is most likely the word.
Such as in the following sentence:

"This made the Europeans a unified and reliable partner."
or...
"This made European Union (EU) a unified and reliable partner."

As a Greek tuxedo renter once said
"Euripides, Eumenides".

@Ragman,
In order to become unified, they had to cross many Euripi.

(Plural of Euripus, a violent water flow strait).

I found and read the speech and I am convinced "Euripi" is a typo for "Europe".
