Wenstrup Comments on Passage of House Resolution to Support New MOU Between U.S. and Israel
Washington, September 13, 2016
Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-2) issued the following statement on the passage of H. Res. 729, a resolution that would express congressional support for finalization of a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the United States and Israel.
“Israel, our strongest friend and ally in the Middle East, is threatened daily by enemies including Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah, which has stockpiled tens of thousands of rockets aimed at Israeli cities,” Wenstrup said. “Finalizing a new Memorandum of Understanding between the United States and Israel that increases security assistance and missile defense funding is essential to strengthening Israel’s ability to protect itself and promoting stability in the surrounding region.”
The State Department announced today that the Administration has finalized a new MOU with Israel. The President plans to sign it Wednesday in a public ceremony.
