“‘I asked to take over the Co-chairmanship of the Serbian-American Congressional Caucus, given that I am confident that this would provide a great opportunity to help strengthen the relationship between the two countries, in order to better work together and help one another,’ revealed the US Congressman Steve Stivers (R-OH, District 15) for ‘Politika’ . This Brigadier General of the Ohio National Guard should replace Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX, District 2), a current Co-chair of the Serbian-American Congressional Caucus who is retiring following his term.

Stivers explains that the final confirmation of his entry into the post of head of the congressional caucus representing the interests of Serbia is not expected before the end of this year. ‘I look forward to this opportunity and I will continue to advocate for the strengthening of Serbian-American relations,’ says Stivers. The Congressman originating from Ohio is a member of the Republican Party, as well as his predecessor. He was a member of the Ohio Senate and served as general and commander of a battalion in Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and Djibouti. He was awarded the Bronze Star for duty during the Operation Iraqi Freedom.” (translated from Politika)
