WASHINGTON - The House Foreign Affairs Committee encouraged the Obama administration to agree to a "robust" decade-long defense package to Israel on Thursday.
Negotiations over a new aid deal, likely to be worth $35-40 billion, are said to be in final stages.
The resolution, passed with bipartisan support, "places Congress on record as supporting a robust long-term assistance package to our most important regional partner," said the committee's chairman, Congressman Ed Royce (R-California).
The committee also encouraged the European Union to list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, and passed a resolution honoring the life of Elie Wiesel, famed author and Holocaust survivor, after his death earlier this month.
Congress enters summer recess at the end of the week, and will return to work in September.
