U.S. House Passes a Resolution To Encourage “Robust Relations with the State of Israel"
On May 10th, the U.S. House passed H.Res.835 titled, “Supporting robust relations with the State of Israel bilaterally and in multilateral fora upon seventy years of statehood, and for other purposes.”
Beyond calling upon other nations to enter into “robust relations” with Israel, the bill emphasizes the recent diplomatic advances that the Jewish State has made in the effort of encouraging other nations to give diplomatic recognition to Israel in the international arena.
Of the resolution’s many sponsors from both political parties, Texas Congressman Michael McCaul was one of the four representatives to introduce the bill to the House.
Congressman McCaul commented on the significance of the resolution:
“With the passage of this resolution in the House, there should be no confusion amongst the international community as to where our relationship stands now and where it will be in the future. As we approach the 70th anniversary of Israel as a state, we must reflect on our strong bilateral relationship, and continue working together to advance our common interests internationally.”
