Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere released the following statement regarding President Obama's announcement that he will seek Congressional approval before taking military action in Syria:

"I commend the President for following the Constitution and seeking Congressional approval before taking military action in Syria. Now it is up to the Administration to convince Congress and the American people that intervening in this two-year long Syrian civil war is in our nation's best interests.

"If it is proven that the Assad regime used chemical weapons against its own people there must be consequences; the question for the Administration, Congress and the American people, is what should those consequences be. I will look forward to the President answering many questions regarding urgency of action, strategy and objectives as we take up this debate."
