Biden hails passage of $95.3b aid package for Ukraine, Israel, urges House to move ‘with urgency’

US President Joe Biden says the Senate passage earlier of a $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan “is critical to advancing America’s national security interests and “will allow the United States to continue our vital work, together with our allies and partners all around the world.”

The bill, he says, will help the US “stand up for Ukraine’s freedom and support its ability to defend itself against Russia’s aggression,” and “provide Israel with what it needs to protect its people against Hamas terrorists.”

“Significantly, this agreement will provide life-saving humanitarian assistance for the Palestinian people, the vast majority of whom have nothing to do with Hamas,” he says.

“I applaud the bipartisan coalition of Senators who came together to advance this agreement, and I urge the House to move on this with urgency. We cannot afford to wait any longer,” he adds.
