Foster: 'I welcome diplomatic efforts'

U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, released a statement following the speech by President Obama on Syrian intervention.

“It was clear to me in the last 24 hours that we are dealing with a rapidly evolving situation that requires a strong collective response by the international community. I do not believe the president and his administration have made a convincing case to the American people that striking Syria with military force is in the best interest of our nation. I welcome constructive diplomatic efforts and will look seriously at any proposal that takes chemical weapons out of the hands of Assad – or rebel factions – and places them under secure international monitoring and control. We will watch closely as the president works with our allies to hammer out a proposal that will lead to a longer-term solution and Syria policy.”
