Feb. 28, 2018: Ambassador Hutchison on Senate NATO Observers Group

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATEMENT BY AMBASSADOR KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON

ON RECONSTITUTION OF SENATE NATO OBSERVERS GROUP

 

I am delighted that my former colleagues in the Senate have re-established the Senate NATO Observers Group. I believe the reconstitution of this Observers Group demonstrates the deep and bipartisan support the Alliance enjoys across our nation.

I wholeheartedly support this initiative and pledge myself and our staff at the U.S. Mission to NATO to assist Senators Shaheen and Tillis and the other members of the group to obtain timely and pertinent information on the Alliance and the important decisions that it is dealing with.

I welcome the Observer Group members to Brussels for regular consultations at NATO headquarters and stand ready to brief members whenever I am in Washington.

NATO remains the most successful security alliance in history.  I am proud of the leadership our Administration has brought to the Alliance and look forward to continuing our role in NATO on behalf of the American people.
