House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the following statement during his visit to Japan:
"We have a senior delegation of House Members who believe that America has global interests and support America's engagement in the world. We support an America that leads. We welcome the President's visit to the Asia-Pacific and to Japan. Our coinciding visits reflect a strong commitment on behalf of both the U.S. executive and legislative branches toward this region. We believe that our prosperity in America is tied to the growth and stability of the Asia-Pacific and that a cornerstone of U.S. engagement in this region is the U.S.-Japanese alliance.
"As a global power, however, the United States has many challenges across the world. We all remain very concerned about what's going in Iran and its quest for a nuclear weapons capability. We are also very concerned about the terrible conflict in Syria, as well as by Mr. Putin of Russia's aggression toward Ukraine.
