Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement on the terrorist attack in Tunis, Tunisia:
“This attack is abhorrent but not surprising.  As a new democracy in a region in turmoil, Tunisia has become a target for terrorists. Tunisia is a symbol of peaceful democratic transition in the Middle East. The U.S. needs to do more to help Tunisia secure its borders and build capable government institutions – especially in the security sector.”
