Congressional Testimony

  • The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held hearings again on April 26, 2006, testimony from the hearing is available here. Ronald Lehman’s testimony can be found here.
  • Secretary Rice testifed in front of the House International Relations Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 5, 2006, her testimony can be found here and here.

By laying out a set of fundamental principles associated with changes in public law, and by establishing conditions for different levels of relaxation, the Congress could provide consistency and clarity that are lacking in the July 2005 Joint Statement, while strengthening global norms against proliferation. Improved bilateral ties with India will continue to proceed on many fronts, including trade, investment, non-nuclear energy, agriculture, defense cooperation, and public health issues. There is no compelling reason why improved relations should come at a great cost to the non-proliferation norms that have buttressed national and international security.

The prepared remarks of Henry Sokolski, Ashton Carter, and Ron Lehman in addition to testimony from administration officials may be downloaded from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
