        H.Con.Res.264
                                      Agreed to November 9, 2001        

                      One Hundred Seventh Congress

                                 of the

                        United States of America


                          AT THE FIRST SESSION

         Begun and held at the City of Washington on Wednesday,
             the third day of January, two thousand and one


                          Concurrent Resolution

Whereas Congress is pleased to welcome the Prime Minister of India, 
  Atal Bihari Vajpayee, on his visit to the United States;

Whereas the United States and India, the world's two largest 
  democracies, are natural allies, based on their shared values and 
  common interests in building a stable, peaceful, and prosperous world 
  in the 21st century;

Whereas from the very day that the terrorist attacks in New York and 
  Washington occurred, India has expressed its condolences for the 
  terrible losses, its solidarity with the American people, and its 
  pledge of full cooperation in the campaign against international 
  terrorism;

Whereas India, which has been on the front lines in the fight against 
  international terrorism for many years, directly shares America's 
  grief over the terrorist attacks against the United States on 
  September 11, 2001, with the number of missing Indian nationals and 
  persons of Indian origin estimated at 250;

Whereas the United States and India are engaged as partners in a global 
  coalition to combat the scourge of international terrorism, a 
  partnership that began well before the tragic events of September 11, 
  2001;

Whereas cooperation between India and the United States extends beyond 
  the current international campaign against terrorism, and has been 
  steadily developing over recent years in such areas as preserving 
  stability and growth in the global economy, protecting the 
  environment, combating infectious diseases, and expanding trade, 
  especially in emerging knowledge-based industries and high technology 
  areas; and

Whereas more than 1,000,000 Americans of Indian heritage have 
  contributed immeasurably to American society: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of Congress--
        (1) to welcome the Prime Minister of India, Atal Bihari 
    Vajpayee, to the United States;
        (2) to express profound gratitude to the Government of India 
    for its expressions of sympathy for the September 11, 2001, 
    terrorist attacks and its demonstrated willingness to fully 
    cooperate with the United States in the campaign against terrorism; 
    and
        (3) to pledge commitment to the continued expansion of 
    friendship and cooperation between the United States and India.
  Attest:

                                 Clerk of the House of Representatives.

  Attest:

                                               Secretary of the Senate.
