Rep. McNerney Issues Statement on Meeting with Indian Prime Minister Modi
Washington – Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) issued the following statement after meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to California:
“I’m appreciative of the opportunity to meet with the Indian Prime Minister to discuss issues that are important to my constituents and our country. As we become more and more globally connected through technological advancements, it is critical that we foster productive dialogue that boosts peace and prosperity around the world. This is especially important when it comes to protecting human rights and civil and religious freedoms -- the values of democracy that are the founding principles of the United States. Our world is a better place when people are free from persecution and able to live in a just society. And I was pleased to be able to convey this to Prime Minister Modi when we met.”
