Turner Statement on Obama Europe Security Aid Announcement

Jun 3, 2014

Washington, D.C. —Following President Obama’s announcement Tuesday of his European Reassurance Initiative (ERI), Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement:

“Today, in the wake of ongoing Russian aggression, President Obama took a step forward to reassure our European allies of the U.S. commitment to Europe.

I was glad to see the President heed the leadership of the House of Representatives and take action consistent with congressional calls for a stronger military presence in Europe.

I look forward to receiving additional details and carefully reviewing the President’s proposal as we continue to closely monitor the situation."
