(WASHINGTON, DC) - Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) today was selected to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. This recommendation was made by the House Steering Committee and is expected to go before the full conference for ratification soon.

"This committee is crucial to the well being of our nation's strength and prosperity from both the economic and national security perspectives," said Congresswoman Malliotakis. "As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I look forward to working with my colleagues to strengthen ties with our allies, build on the success of the Trump Administration's trade and peace deals and advocate for freedom and democracy around the globe."

The House Foreign Affairs Committee is responsible for oversight and legislation relating to foreign assistance, national security developments affecting foreign policy, strategic planning and agreements, war powers, treaties, executive agreements and the deployments and use of the United States Armed Forces.

"I am pleased to welcome Congresswoman Malliotakis to the House Foreign Affairs Committee," said House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul. "Congresswoman Malliotakis has great experience in foreign policy and represents an extremely diverse district. She will be an important voice on our committee and I look forward to working closely with her to advance U.S. interests around the world."

Malliotakis has expressed concerns about President Biden’s decision to reenter the Paris Climate Accord without renegotiating terms that end the advantage given to China and India to level the playing field for the United States.

As a member of the World Hellenic Inter-parliamentary Association, Malliotakis has been vocal on issues pertaining to Greece, Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region and supportive of the trilateral agreement among Greece, Cyprus and Israel. 

A supporter of Israel, she visited the new embassy in Jerusalem with former Governor Mike Huckabee and the National Council of Young Israels in 2019.

Malliotakis was also named an Assistant Whip for the House Republican Conference, and yesterday was appointed to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.
