WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), chairs of the Senate NATO Observer Group, reaffirmed Congress’ commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in advance of the organization’s 70th anniversary. Senators Tillis and Shaheen held a Senate NATO Observer Group meeting with Ambassador Kay Baily Hutchison and more than 20 NATO Ambassadors before Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg addressed a joint meeting of Congress.
“As co-chairs of the Senate NATO Observer Group, we reaffirm the Senate’s steadfast commitment to the NATO alliance,” said Senators Tillis and Shaheen. “As the transatlantic community continues to face common security challenges like cyber threats, terrorism and a rise in aggression from Russia and China, it’s imperative that we work closely with our NATO Allies to ensure the safety and stability of our partners. As we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of NATO, we thank all of our allies and partners that have helped ensure security and peace.”Share:
