Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced the Committee will convene a hearing on Tuesday, June 16, at which the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, will testify.  The hearing, entitled “Advancing United States’ Interests at the United Nations,” will begin at 10 a.m.                                   

Chairman Royce on the hearing: “In the coming months, the United Nations Security Council is likely to consider several key issues, including sanctions on Iran and North Korea, peacekeeping reform, and Middle East security.  It is critical that our mission to the United Nations advance our national interests in an institution that has long been in desperate need of reform and often taken positions against American interests.  This hearing will give members an opportunity to press the U.S. Ambassador to the UN on Congressional concerns and priorities.”
