Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced the following upcoming Committee events: Tuesday, June 10Hearing: Verifying Iran's Nuclear Compliance 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 10 in 2172 Rayburn House Office BuildingCommittee on Foreign Affairs

Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman Invited Witnesses Include: The Honorable Stephen G. Rademaker National Security Advisor Bipartisan Policy Center (Former Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Arms Control & Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, U.S. Department of State) Mr. John A. Lauder Senior Advisor 20twenty Strategic Consulting, Inc. (Former Director, Nonproliferation Center, Intelligence Community) Mr. Olli Heinonen Senior Fellow Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs John F. Kennedy School of Government Harvard University (Former Deputy Director General, International Atomic Energy Agency) The Honorable Joseph R. DeTrani President Intelligence and National Security Alliance (Former Director, National Counter Proliferation Center, Office of the Director of National Intelligence) Chairman Royce on the hearing: "A nuclear Iran is the gravest national security threat facing the United States today.  Given Iran's long record of deception, any nuclear agreement in which we cannot completely verify compliance would be an open invitation for Tehran to continue its secret nuclear weapons program, forcing the world tolive with the permanent threat of a nuclear-armed Iran. At this hearing, the Committee will examine, with top national security experts, the requirements that would be needed for the United States and international inspectors to comprehensively verify Iran's compliance with its nuclear commitments." Tuesday, June 10Subcommittee Hearing: The State Department's Counterterrorism Bureau: Budget, Programs, and Evaluation 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10 in 2200 Rayburn House Office BuildingSubcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), Chairman Invited Witnesses Include: The Honorable Tina Kaidanow Ambassador-at-Large and Coordinator for Counterterrorism U.S. Department of State Chairman Poe on the hearing: "Terrorism remains one of the most dangerous threats to U.S. national security. Bin laden is dead and so are some other senior al-Qaeda terrorists but the threat from broader al-Qaeda, including some of their affiliates is greater today than it was even a year or two ago. State's Counterterrorism Bureau has a big role to play in countering the threat from al-Qaeda and its affiliates. We look forward to this oversight hearing so we can find out exactly what the Bureau is doing, whether or not it is having an impact countering al-Qaeda, and what it can do to improve its efforts." Tuesday, June 10Subcommittee Hearing: Examining U.S. Reconstruction Efforts in Afghanistan 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10 in 2172 Rayburn House Office BuildingSubcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman Invited Witnesses include: The Honorable John F. Sopko Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction Mr. Charles Michael Johnson, Jr. Director, International Security & Counterterrorism Issues International Affairs & Trade Team U.S. Government Accountability Office Chairman Ros-Lehtinen on the hearing: "Afghanistan has become the largest ever stabilization, relief and reconstruction effortundertaken by the U.S. government, with allocations now exceeding over $103billion in U.S. taxpayer money, surpassing similar efforts in Iraq which saw the total U.S. investment surpass $66 billion. The final assessment by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction painted a grim picture of the United States' inability to conduct such endeavors on this large a scale and the end result was a waste of nearly $8 billion in taxpayer dollars lost towaste, fraud, abuse and a lack of accountability. It is important that Congress continue to conduct proper oversight over these funds, and this hearing is a chance to see if the U.S. government has learned its lessons from Iraq and if it has implemented the reforms needed to properly plan, execute and overseethis type of operation in the most efficient and effective manner." Wednesday, June 11Subcommittee Hearing: Assessing Energy Priorities in the Middle East and North Africa 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 11 in 2172 Rayburn House Office BuildingSubcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman Invited witnesses include: Mr. Amos J. Hochstein Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Diplomacy Bureau of Energy Resources U.S. Department of State Chairman Ros-Lehtinen on the hearing: "The political unrest in the Middle East and North Africa over the past several years has had a huge impact on the region's energy supply as well as the economies of many of the countries that depend greatly on their oil and gasrevenues. Recent discoveries of large natural gas fields off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea have also been a game changer and has the potential to upend the traditional geopolitical landscape in the region. All of this has serious implications for not only the region, but also the United States' bilateral relations with our regional partners. This hearing will address the changing dynamics of Middle East and North African oil sectors, and how U.S. policy is adjusting to meet those changes." Wednesday, June 11Subcommittee Markup: H.R. 4653, United States Commission on International Religious Freedom Reauthorization Act of 2014 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11 in 2172 Rayburn House Office BuildingSubcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations Rep.
