WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Monday (February 5) upon passage of H.R. 2646, a bill to reauthorize the United States-Jordan Defense Cooperation Act of 2015:

“The defense alliance between America and Jordan protects U.S. interests in an important region of the world,” Westerman said. “I have seen first-hand the difficult security situation Jordan faces with conflicts just over its border. We must continue to stand with King Abdullah and the people of Jordan, offering assistance when necessary to strengthen our relationship and provide stability in a volatile region of the world.”
