California Congressman and Blue Dog Caucus member Jim Costa was elected Vice Chairperson of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s Economic Security Committee last week during the Assembly’s 64th annual session in Halifax, Canada.

“NATO is one of the most significant international organizations in the world, and I am honored that my colleagues elected me Vice Chair of the Economic Security Committee,” said Rep. Costa. “The United States must continue to strengthen its relationships with our international allies. Together, we must consider the comprehensive long-term effects of our decisions and work strategically for global stability and peace.”

Congressman Costa has been a long-time advocate for working with international allies and partners to make the world safer through a comprehensive strategy of diplomacy, sanctions, and deterrence. He is currently the Ranking Member of the U.S. Delegation to the Transatlantic Legislators Dialogue and Co-chair of the Transatlantic Policy Network’s Steering Committee.

During this year’s session, Costa has proposed three provisions on behalf of the United States, which the Assembly voted to move forward by sending to NATO leadership. The provisions aim to increase stability in the Middle East, provide defense assistance to NATO partners in the Middle East and North Africa, and strengthen NATO’s satellite and other space-based defense capabilities. Rep. Costa was elected Vice Chair of the key committee by delegates from the 29 NATO Parliamentary Assembly Member States.
