Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the following statement after today’s closed briefing with administration officials:

“Our diplomats serving overseas, and their families, run risks every day.  Their safety must be our top priority.  The State Department made the right decision in recalling nonessential personnel from Havana and expelling Cuban officials from Washington to hold Cuba accountable for the safety of Americans.  I am deeply disturbed by questions that remain unanswered regarding these unusual attacks.  The House Foreign Affairs Committee will continue to provide oversight of the administration’s investigation and its care for our men and women who’ve been harmed.”
