Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01), senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement after the death of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
 
“There is no doubt that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the longest serving Prime Minister in Japan’s history, made a lasting impact on not only Japan but on his beloved nation’s standing in the world. He formed strong relationships with various U.S. Presidents and Administrations, strengthening the alliance between our nations. A dedicated public servant, he devoted his life to serving the people of Japan and ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific.
 
“My thoughts are with the Japanese people today as they mourn and contend with this violent attack and my prayers are with his family in their time of grief.”
