Press release from
the office of Rep. Mark Meadows
Washington, D.C. – Representative Mark Meadows (NC-11) released the following statement after Speaker of the House John Boehner appointed him to the Congressional-Executive Commission on China. This bipartisan delegation of nine Congressmen, nine Senators, and five senior administration officials monitors human rights abuses and the development of the rule of law in China and submits a report to the President and Congress every year.
“While interacting with foreign nations politically and economically, we must not endorse behavior in those countries that we would not tolerate in America. Despite international outrage over the Tiananmen Square Massacre that occurred 24 years ago today, human rights abuses continue in China. The Congressional-Executive Commission on China seeks to encourage the Chinese government to end these abuses against its people. I am honored to have been selected to serve on this Commission and pray that our efforts will make a difference for those suffering persecution.”
