Bipartisan U.S. Congressional Delegation Visits India for Strategic Talks and Meeting with Dalai Lama

Date:

Washington, DC – A high-profile bipartisan congressional delegation, led by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, is visiting India to strengthen strategic ties and support democratic values. The delegation includes notable members such as Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Gregory W. Meeks (D-NY), House Rules Committee Ranking Member Jim McGovern (D-MA), House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Indo-Pacific Ranking Member Ami Bera (D-CA), and Representatives Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) and Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) underscores the unity of the U.S. Congress in supporting the U.S.-India relationship and democratic movements..

During their visit, the delegation will engage in discussions with His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, and with Indian government officials and representatives of U.S. businesses operating in India.

“India is the world’s largest democracy and an important strategic partner of the United States,” stated Chairman McCaul. “I look forward to meeting with government officials and the American business community to learn how we can continue to strengthen our relationship with India. I am also honored to have the opportunity to meet with His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Tibetans are a democracy-loving people who wish to practice their religion freely. This visit should highlight the bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress for Tibet to have a say in their own future.”

The visit underscores the significance of the U.S.-India partnership, which has evolved considerably over the past quarter-century. “I look forward to joining Chairman McCaul and Speaker Emerita Pelosi to demonstrate the strong bipartisan support for the U.S.-India relationship,” stated Ranking Member Meeks. “Over the past 25 years, our relationship with India has transformed to become one of the United States’ most consequential. I’m also honored to have a chance to meet with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and to hear his views on how the American People can help advance the Tibetan people’s struggle for autonomy.”

This delegation’s visit is a testament to the deepening ties between the U.S. and India, as well as a show of support for democratic movements and religious freedoms around the world. The discussions are expected to cover a wide range of issues, including economic cooperation, defense, and regional security, reflecting the multifaceted nature of the U.S.-India relationship.
