Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H. Res. 11, which denounces and objects to the recently passed anti-Israel United Nations Security Council resolution.

“By refusing to veto the United Nations Security Council vote, the Obama Administration once again undermined Israel, one of our strongest allies. I am proud to have voted for today's House Resolution that supports Israel and bilateral negotiations towards a peace agreement. Our current President has shamefully failed to stand up to our enemies and defend our allies. I look forward to working with President-elect Trump to reverse eight years of egregious foreign policy that has weakened our country and our allies, and emboldened our enemies.”
