HIRONO STATEMENT FOLLOWING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SPEECH ON SYRIA

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Senator Mazie K. Hirono released the following statement on President Obama's speech on Syria.

"This evening, President Obama presented the facts to consider as we contemplate action in Syria. Clearly, the situation is changing rapidly. The reopening of diplomatic dialogue between Syria and the international community is a hopeful sign, but, like many others, I believe its too early to tell if the regime will follow through.  I continue to assess the situation with our military leaders and listen to constituents as we proceed with diplomatic efforts."
