[Congressional Bills 106th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [S. Con. Res. 110 Referred in House (RFH)] 2d Session S. CON. RES. 110 _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES May 25, 2000 Referred to the Committee on International Relations _______________________________________________________________________ CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Congratulating the Republic of Latvia on the tenth anniversary of the reestablishment of its independence from the rule of the former Soviet Union. Whereas the United States had never recognized the forcible incorporation of the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania into the former Soviet Union; Whereas the declaration on May 4, 1990, of the reestablishment of full sovereignty and independence of the Republic of Latvia furthered the disintegration of the former Soviet Union; Whereas Latvia since then has successfully built democracy, passed legislation on human and minority rights that conform to European and international norms, ensured the rule of law, developed a free market economy, and consistently pursued a course of integration into the community of free and democratic nations by seeking membership in the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; and Whereas Latvia, as a result of the progress of its political and economic reforms, has made, and continues to make, a significant contribution toward the maintenance of international peace and stability by, among other actions, its participation in NATO-led peacekeeping operations in Bosnia and Kosovo: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That Congress hereby-- (1) congratulates Latvia on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the reestablishment of its independence and the role it played in the disintegration of the former Soviet Union; and (2) commends Latvia for its success in implementing political and economic reforms, which may further speed the process of that country's integration into European and Western institutions. Passed the Senate May 24, 2000. Attest: GARY SISCO, Secretary.
