WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Committee and its Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, issued the following statement on missing journalist and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi:

“I am deeply concerned by the disappearance of journalist and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi at Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Turkey.

The Administration must demand answers from the Saudis on this incident and brief Congress on their findings.”
