Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) released the following statement tonight on the attacks in Paris:

“My thoughts and prayers are with all who have suffered from the horrific terrorist attacks across Paris – the largest Europe has seen in years.

“France has been among our closest allies in combatting terrorism.  Tonight is another tragic reminder that the people of France stand on the front lines in the fight against a dangerous and growing jihadist ideology that knows no bounds.

“Standing together, we will defend our shared values of freedom, liberty, and equality.”
