Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Session July 22, 2014
Jack Reed, D-RI
"I ask unanimous consent that the resolution be agreed to, the preamble be agreed to, and the motions to reconsider be considered made and laid upon the table with no intervening action or debate."
In Support Of A Resolution Of The Cyprus Issue July 22, 2014
Pete Sessions, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to join my colleagues in calling for a resolution of what seems to have become the never-ending division of the island of Cyprus. I speak not of a resolution that casts blame for what has gone before, but one that reunites both Cypriot communities and allows the island as a whole to chart a path forward within the international community. In much of the historical rhetoric surrounding this issue, what sometimes gets lost is that all Cypriots—Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots—have legitimate grievances. Any resolution of the Cyprus question must respect the rights of all Cypriots. All Cypriots must be allowed to participate freely in the island’s national life. Finally, the international isolation of the Turkish Cypriot community must come to an end. The overwhelming vote ten years ago by Turkish Cypriots to end the status quo and for the Annan Plan underlines the ridiculousness of Turkish Cypriot isolation. As we observe this year the 40th anniversary of the island, and the 10th anniversary of the vote on the Annan Plan, the fact remains that two generations of Greek and Turkish Cypriots have known nothing but the status quo. It cannot be maintained for future generations. I call on the Administration and my colleagues to support and encourage the ongoing dialogue between both communities, so that a comprehensive settlement that encourages reunion and reconciliation can be secured."
Regarding U.S. Support For Israel July 22, 2014
Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"Madam President, as the conflict in Gaza continues to escalate, we mourn the tragic loss of lives and hope for a speedy and peaceful resolution. Israelis and Palestinians have both seen far too much bloodshed and destruction."
Urging The Reunification Of Cyprus July 22, 2014
Bill Foster, D-IL
"Today, there are still many challenges that the Greek and Turkish Cypriots need to resolve before reunification can take place. While the path won’t be easy and it will take the political courage of both sides, I am confident that a peaceful resolution can be found."
Recognizing The Honorable Brent T. Adams July 22, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Beyond his remarkable career at the district court, Judge Adams has had a tremendous impact on the entire legal community. He has served as a faculty member of the National Judicial College for 20 years, where he conducts national and international legal and judicial training on a wide array of topics. Judge Adams initiated the Washoe County drug court, the court services program, and the Washoe County Criminal Justice Advisory Committee, which he chaired from 1993 to 2002.
