Congresswoman Ann Wagner

Representing the 2nd District of Missouri

Foreign Affairs

As a former United States Ambassador, I saw firsthand the importance of strengthening ties with our allies around the globe in order to enhance our national security, protect American interests abroad, and promote democracy and human rights. I am committed to working in the United States House of Representatives to ensure our nation continues its role as a leader on the world stage.

We must continue our steadfast support for the nation of Israel while remaining cautiously optimistic regarding the revolutions throughout the Middle East. Furthermore, it is essential we use all the tools of foreign policy to ensure Iran and North Korea cease their development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
