Congress Passes Resolution Recognizing the 50th Anniversary of the Treaties of Rome

  TWIG - As Berlin, Brussels, and other European capitals gear up for the European Union’s 50th anniversary bash, the celebratory mood seems to have wafted over the Atlantic all the way to Capitol Hill. The United States Congress sent a congratulatory message across the Atlantic in the form of a Congressional Resolution last week.

The House of Representatives unanimously passed H. Res. 230, recognizing the 50th anniversary of the treaties that launched the European Union. Congressman Robert Wexler, Chairman of the Europe Subcommittee and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, sponsored the resolution, which congratulates the 27 members of the European Union on this historic occasion and expresses strong support for deepening relations between the United States and Europe.

"European unification and the formation of the European Union is one of the most remarkable global developments of the last fifty years," said Wexler. "From the ashes of two world wars, the Holocaust and the Cold War, Europe has united under the common goals of human rights, economic prosperity and environmental protection."

Of course, Wexler also touched on the bright future of the transatlantic partnership as well, "Today the EU is a remarkable success that benefits close to 500 million European citizens and tremendously strengthens the transatlantic relationship. The EU and our European allies remain America’s most important global partner, and it is essential that we act together to address the difficult challenges of the 21st Century."
