Washington—Representative Eliot L. Engel, Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Rep. Michael McCaul, the Committee’s Ranking Member, today introduced three pieces of legislation reaffirming the importance of American values, alliances, and diplomacy and development as pillars of a uniquely American foreign policy. The three bipartisan resolutions will help guide the Committee’s agenda and priorities for the 116th Congress.
“The United States is strongest on the global stage when we conduct a foreign policy rooted in core American values—support for democracy, human rights, and the rule of law—and when we use the tools of diplomacy and development in conjunction with like-minded friends and allies.
With the measures I introduced with Mr. McCaul, Congress has an opportunity to emphasize the key pillars that underpin our greatest successes as a world power. In the days ahead, the Foreign Affairs Committee will look to these principles as we advance legislation and conduct oversight aimed at advancing American interests and security around the world,” said Chairman Engel.
