Washington, DC — Today, the U.S. House passed House Resolution 1464, which recognized the 50th anniversary of the United States—Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security. This resolution, which was initially co-sponsored by former Rep. Neil Abercrombie, was the first piece of legislation passed of which Congressman Charles Djou (HI-01) was an original co-sponsor.

“I was proud to support this important legislation that honors the long history of cooperation between the United States and Japan and am pleased that this is the first measure to pass out of the U.S. House with my signature on it as a co-sponsor.

“With over a quarter of Hawaii’s population consisting of individuals of Japanese descent, their culture and history play key roles in the lives of constituents in Hawaii’s First Congressional District.

“The United States and Japan will face a wide range of global and regional issues that may potentially affect the prosperity of our nation in the future. I believe it is vital that we remain dedicated to promoting strong U.S. relations with Japan in the coming years.”

Congressman Djou, a Member of the House Budget and Armed Services Committee, joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers in co-sponsoring this resolution that:

Recognizes: (1) Japan as an indispensable U.S. security partner in providing peace and stability to the Asia-Pacific region; and (2) that the support and understanding of the Japanese people are indispensable for the stationing of U.S. Armed Forces in Japan.

Expresses appreciation to the people of Japan, and especially on Okinawa, for their continued hosting of U.S. Armed Forces.

Encourages Japan to continue its international engagement in humanitarian, development, and environmental issues.

Anticipates another 50 years of friendship and cooperation under the auspices of the United States-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security.
