Pallone Statement on India’s 71st Anniversary of Independence
Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D NJ-06) issued a statement in celebration of India’s 71st Independence Day Anniversary.
“For the past 71 years India has proved to be a shining example of democracy and growth. India’s expanded role on the world stage has made it one of America’s most important allies and I will continue to work to strengthen our relationship through my work in Congress. This includes maintaining my longstanding support for India’s effort to have a permanent seat on the United Nation's Security Council. I look forward to our continued work together on global strategic, economic, and environmental issues”
Congressman Pallone is a co-founder and former chairman of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Issues. Last year, Pallone introduced H.Res.786, a resolution expressing the sense of Congress that India should have a permanent seat on the United Nation's Security Council. The resolution would put the U.S. House of Representatives officially on record in support of India's bid.
