House Passes Meeks’ Resolution Condemning Manchester, London Attacks and Offering Support for the British People

Washington, D.C.—Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed Congressman Meeks’ resolution, H.Res. 355, which condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, United Kingdom, expresses heartfelt condolences, and reaffirms unwavering support for the special relationship between our peoples and nations in the wake of these attacks. Regarding the passage of his resolution, Congressman Meeks released the following statement:

“As citizens of the world, we were horrified to see two terrorist attacks on British soil within two weeks of each other. Unlike the cowardly terrorists who perpetrated the attacks, the people of Manchester, London, and the UK were heroic, showing the rest of the world how to persevere in the face of terrorism.

“In passing my resolution, the House of Representatives resoundingly condemned the terrorists and supported the British people. Our two countries share a special friendship that is both strong and sincere, and this resolution reaffirms it. I look forward to the Senate passing this resolution, too, in a showing of bicameral and bipartisan support for our dear friends, the people of the United Kingdom.”
