Interest rate parity applies the cost of carry (COC) model to enforce an equilibrium (indifference) between two choices: 1. translate the 1,000 EURs immediately at the spot FX rate, and subsequently grow them at the USD risk-free rate for two years; or 2. hold the 1,000 EURs, grow them at the EUR riskfree rate, and translate at the end of two years per the forward FX rate (i.e., exchange the EUR for USD)
