Washington, D.C. This week, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), returned from Jordan, Israel, and Egypt on a historic bipartisan Congressional Delegation to strengthen our relationships with our partners and allies and meet with various government leaders in the region.These trips are important for the Congresswoman’s oversight and legislative work on HPSCI and the House Armed Services Committee. Stefanik traveled with fellow HPSCI members, Chairman Michael Turner (R-OH-10), Ranking Member Jim Himes (D-CT-04), Congressman Ami Bera (D-CA-06), Congressman Darin LaHood (R-IL-16), Congressman French Hill (R-AR-02), Delegate Stacey Plaskett (D-VI), Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-02), Congressman Jimmy Gomez (D-CA-34), Congressman Mike Waltz (R-FL-06), and Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-07).“It was an honor to help lead a bipartisan Congressional Delegation to Jordan, Israel, and Egypt last week with my House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence colleagues,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “As Israel continues to defend itself against an onslaught of attacks at its sovereign borders from Iranian-backed terrorists, we met with Prime Minister Netanyahu to highlight our continuous support for Israel, our longest standing democratic ally in the Middle East, and their right to defend themselves from aggressors. It was also incredibly moving to visit Israel to commemorate its 75th Anniversary of independence.Our delegation also visitedEgypt and Jordan, in support of the shared goal of safety and security in the region. We met with His Majesty King Abdullah II in Jordan and President el-Sisi in Egypt to continue to strengthen our national security partnerships in the region. Thank you to all of the incredibly hard working American public servants who represent our nation’s interest every day at the U.S. Embassies. We are grateful to the Jordanian, Israeli, and Egyptian governments for their hospitality and warm welcome of our delegation.”Find photos from the trip below.
