Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna Joins Pak Congressional Caucus

Darpan News Desk IANS, 14 Aug, 2019
  • Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna Joins Pak Congressional Caucus

Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna has joined the Congressional Pakistan Caucus.


He would continue to pursue the American objectives of a strong US-India relationship and peace, and stability in the region.


The two-term Democratic Congressman representing Silicon Valley is the first Indian-American lawmaker to join the Congressional Pakistan Caucus, which is co-chaired by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (Democratic) and Congressman Jim Banks (Republican).

 

Both Jackson Lee and Khanna (42) are also members of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans, which is the largest country-specific caucus in the House of Representatives.


Khanna, who in the last two years has made a mark in the House of Representatives on foreign policy and national security issues, joined the Pakistani Caucus after the visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to the US last month.


“I am a proud member of the US-India Caucus and have supported legislation condemning the terrorist bombing in Kashmir and promoting stronger defence ties between the US and India,” Khanna told.


“At the same time, I believe it’s critical to engage all regional players, including India and Pakistan, to stabilise Afghanistan so that the US can withdraw troops. I will continue to pursue the American objectives of a strong US-India relationship and peace and stability in the region,” he said in response to a question.
