Sen. Menendez Talks To Alhurra TV About Syria
Alhurra’s Congressional Correspondent Rana Abtar interviewed Sen. Robert Menendez, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He addressed his proposal to provide arms to Syrian rebels stating that his goal is “helping the moderate, vetted rebels to have the wherewithal to fight for their freedom.” In regards to delay in Congress acting on the proposal, he went on to say, “I think there is always a concern as to how deeply involved the United States is going to be.”
Sen. Menendez also discussed the European Union’s designation of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. He said that he applauded their decision and that it further isolates Hezbollah in the world and sends them a message.
