Edward Royce

WASHINGTON – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) announced the Committee will convene a hearing on Wednesday, December 16 to examine Pakistan’s counter-terrorism cooperation, its education reform efforts, and U.S. aid to Pakistan. The hearing, entitled “The Future of U.S.-Pakistan Relations,” will begin at 10 a.m.

Wednesday’s hearing will give the Committee a chance to examine U.S.-Pakistan counterterrorism cooperation, the effectiveness of U.S. aid, and the concerning rise of schools in Pakistan teaching students hardline, jihadist ideology.”
