          Mr. Biden, from the Committee on Foreign Relations,
                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

               INTRODUCTION BY SENATOR RICHARD G. LUGAR,


            CHAIRMAN (109th CONGRESS), U.S. SENATE COMMITTEE


                        ON FOREIGN RELATIONS \1\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ This review and report of activities of the Committee on 
Foreign Relations during the 109th Congress is submitted in response to 
the requirements of Rule XXVI 8(b) of the Standing Rules of the Senate, 
which stipulate that all standing committees report to the Senate, not 
later than March 31 of each odd-numbered year, on its legislative 
activities during the preceding Congress.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    During the 109th Congress, the Committee on Foreign 
Relations pursued an ambitious agenda, which included 244 
hearings and formal meetings. This number consisted of 162 full 
committee hearings and meetings, 25 subcommittee hearings, and 
57 meetings with foreign leaders. For the second consecutive 
Congress, the Foreign Relations Committee met more frequently 
than any other committee in the Senate.
    The committee devoted much attention to overseeing U.S. 
policy towards Iraq during the 109th Congress. The committee 
held seven hearings and numerous briefings on Iraq. It also 
extensively addressed the topic of Iraq during hearings on the 
nominations of Secretary Rice and Deputy Secretary Zoellick, 
the President's foreign policy budget, counterterrorism 
activities, energy vulnerabili-ties, stabilization and 
reconstruction organization, the Middle East peace process, and 
the situations in Iran and Afghanistan.
    The full committee undertook a series of eight hearings on 
global energy issues that focused on the impact of American oil 
dependence on U.S. national security. The full committee also 
devoted much attention to the nuclear proliferation threats 
from Iran and North Korea, holding five hearings and three 
closed briefings on Iran and four hearings on North Korea. 
Other topics on which multiple hearings were held included: 
U.S.-Latin American relations (6); United Nations reform (4); 
the State Department budget, the Millennium Challenge Account, 
and foreign assistance (4); the India Nuclear Agreement (4); 
the HIV/AIDS crisis and global health issues (3); poverty, 
hunger, and relief efforts (3); Afghanistan (3); China (3); 
Russia (3); and the Middle East peace process (2). Additional 
nations on which the full committee or a subcommittee held a 
hearing included: Burma, Indonesia, Japan, Lebanon, Nepal, 
Somalia, and Sudan. Topics related to numerous other countries 
and regions were addressed during hearings on specific 
nominations and treaties.
    The Committee on Foreign Relations has the unique 
responsibility to receive foreign dignitaries, including 
presidents, prime ministers, and foreign ministers. The 
committee held 57 diplomatic meetings with visiting 
dignitaries. These included meetings with leaders from 
Azerbaijan, Colombia, Egypt, Germany Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, 
Pakistan, the Palestinian Authority, Russia, Saudi Arabia, 
Vietnam, and the United Kingdom.
    During the 109th Congress, of the 209 nominations referred 
to the committee, 189 were reported or discharged from the 
committee. The Foreign Relations Committee sent more nominees 
to the floor during the 109th Congress than any other Senate 
committee. Collectively, during the 108th and 109th Congresses, 
the Foreign Relations Committee confirmed 350 nominations, also 
more than any other committee. Only two other committees 
confirmed more than 150 nominees during this period. In 
addition, 2,193 Foreign Service promotions were reported or 
discharged from the committee.
    The committee considered nominations for several of the 
most senior U.S. foreign policy positions, including the 
Secretary of State, the Deputy Secretary of State, the 
Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, 
and the Permanent Representative to the United Nations, as well 
as several Under Secretaries and Assistant Secretaries of 
State. In addition, the committee considered 108 nominees for 
ambassadorial positions. The hearings associated with 
ambassadorial nominations are important statements of U.S. 
policy that are carefully scrutinized by the nation that will 
receive the ambassador, as well as others in the affected 
region.
    The committee reported 19 treaties, and 1 treaty was 
discharged from the committee, all of which were approved by 
the Senate, including several important multilateral treaties 
in the law enforcement area. The Council of Europe Convention 
on Cybercrime is the only multilateral treaty to specifically 
address computer-related crime and the gathering of electronic 
evidence. Similarly, the United Nations Transnational Organized 
Crime Convention is the first multilateral treaty to address 
organized crime. The committee also approved two protocols 
accompanying the Transnational Organized Crime Convention 
dealing with trafficking in persons and migrant smuggling. The 
United Nations Convention Against Corruption supports U.S. 
global anti-corruption efforts by obliging parties to take 
measures designed to prevent corruption, criminalize bribery 
and other corruption-related offenses, and adopt procedures to 
recover assets stolen by corrupt officials. Significantly, 
these three conventions will improve the ability of U.S. law 
enforcement to cooperate with other governments in fighting 
these serious trans-boundary crimes.
    In addition to these three conventions, the committee 
approved the Inter-American Convention Against Terrorism; two 
bilateral extradition treaties, including a new extradition 
treaty with the United Kingdom; two bilateral mutual legal 
assistance treaties; four tax conventions and protocols; a 
bilateral investment treaty with Uruguay; three treaties 
relating to fish and wildlife; a protocol to a marine pollution 
convention; a convention on compensation for nuclear damage; 
and a protocol to a convention on customs procedures. The 
committee discharged a protocol related to international 
humanitarian law.
    In the first session of the 109th Congress, the committee 
reported by a vote of 18-0 a comprehensive Foreign Affairs 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2006 and 2007 (S. 600). This 
bill authorized appropriations for the operating budgets and 
programs of the State Department, the U.S. Agency for 
International Development, the Peace Corps, and the 
Broadcasting Board of Governors.
    In reporting the bill to the Senate, the committee urged 
fellow Senators to embrace the proposition that a strong and 
well-funded civilian foreign policy is critical to preventing 
terrorism and advancing U.S. national security and prosperity. 
The committee expressed its belief that diplomatic clout, 
strong international information programs, and targeted foreign 
assistance are a national security priority.
    The bill received two days of floor consideration on April 
5 and 6, 2005. The bill was pulled from the floor so that 
Members could attend the funeral of Pope John Paul II, after 
which it was not again scheduled for consideration by the 
majority leader.
    Although the Senate leadership never returned to the 
comprehensive bill, the committee worked with its House 
counterparts to advance a number of the bill's provisions in 
legislation that was adopted unanimously in both Houses and 
enacted into law (P.L. 109-89, P.L. 109-140, and P.L. 109-472).
    The committee also passed unanimously an updated, free-
standing version of Title VII of S. 600. This bill (S. 3322) 
was adopted by unanimous consent in the Senate on May 26, 2006. 
The ``Reconstruction and Stabilization Civilian Management Act 
of 2006,'' introduced by Chairman Lugar, authorizes the 
creation of a federal response capability to address post-
conflict situations with active and standby components, as well 
as a civilian reserve. The bill represents a legislative branch 
initiative that was developed in the committee beginning in 
2003. Its purpose is to build Department of State capacity to 
organize and lead the civilian component of stabilization and 
reconstruction missions overseas. The bill provides for an 
office that would anticipate and plan for the difficulties of 
rebuilding stable societies in post-conflict situations.
    The committee continued its examination of the multilateral 
development banks (MDBs), with the intent of strengthening 
reforms at the banks, particularly reforms related to 
corruption prevention. In the 108th Congress, the committee 
held three hearings on MDB operations and transparency. In the 
109th Congress, the committee continued this oversight with 
three additional hearings. These hearings included testimony 
from representatives of the Treasury Department, the United 
States Executive Directors to the MDBs, academics, non-
governmental organizations, and members of civil society. 
Findings from the hearings, project site visits, interviews, 
and document reviews were incorporated into the Development 
Bank Reform and Authorization Act of 2005, S. 1129, which was 
introduced by Chairman Lugar on May 26, 2005. The bill was 
unanimously reported out of committee on July 26, 2005. S. 1129 
had 11 co-sponsors including ranking member Biden and committee 
members Hagel, Alexander, Coleman, Martinez, and Obama. Working 
closely with the Appropriations Committee, the major provisions 
of S. 1129 were included as an amendment, S.A. 1293, to the FY 
06 Foreign Operations appropriations bill, H.R. 3057, and 
signed into law by the President on November 14, 2005.
    The committee continued to work with colleagues on the 
Senate Armed Services Committee to support inter-agency funding 
for safer embassies, strengthen global peace operations 
training programs for foreign militaries, and circumscribe and 
oversee the Department of Defense's growing role in providing 
foreign assistance.
    The committee dispatched in October and November 2006 six 
staff members to 20 countries to examine the military's 
``Section 1206'' foreign assistance program, as well as the 
growing uniformed presence in countries where the United States 
has anti-terrorism programs. The resulting report entitled, 
``Embassies as Command Posts in the Anti-terror Campaign,'' was 
published in December 2006. It recommends strengthening the 
role of ambassadors, maintaining the primacy of the Secretary 
of State in making foreign aid decisions, and improving the 
rationalization of missions and funding between State and 
Defense.
    Also in the Fall of 2006, committee staff traveled to 
sixteen countries on four continents to assess the state of 
democracy promotion as practiced by American-supported NGOs. 
The committee found that elected governments increasingly are 
using authoritarian methods to restrict the ability of civil 
society to operate freely. The committee issued a report 
entitled, ``Nongovernmental Organizations and Democracy 
Promotion: `Giving Voice to the People,' '' on December 22, 
2006. The report contained six guiding principles for how U.S. 
policy can support democracy promotion by NGOs. The committee 
undertook an extensive review of the U.S.-India Peaceful 
Nuclear Agreement. Four public hearings were held with 
testimony from 17 witnesses, including Secretary of State 
Condoleezza Rice. Numerous briefings were held for staff with 
experts from the Congressional Research Service, the State 
Department, and the National Security Council. Chairman Lugar 
submitted 174 written questions for the record to the 
Department of State on details of the agreement and posted the 
answers on the committee website.
    Chairman Lugar had introduced S. 2489, the U.S. Additional 
Protocol Implementation Act, on April 3, 2006. Chairman Lugar 
and Ranking Member Biden agreed to include this legislation as 
Title II of the India legislation. The committee approved the 
India legislation with a strong bipartisan vote of 16-2 on June 
29, 2006. Fifteen members of the committee asked to be named as 
original cosponsors.
    The India/IAEA bill passed the Senate by a vote of 85-12 on 
November 16. The Conference Report to accompany H.R. 5682, The 
Henry H. Hyde United States and India Nuclear Cooperation 
Promotion Act of 2006, was signed by all of the conferees. It 
passed the House by a vote of 330-59, and the Senate by 
unanimous consent. It was signed into law on December 18, 2006.
    The committee passed S. 2566, The Cooperative Proliferation 
Detection, Interdiction Assistance, and Conventional Threat 
Reduction Act of 2006 by unanimous consent on May 26, 2006. The 
legislation authored by Chairman Lugar and Senator Obama 
enhances: (1) U.S. cooperation with foreign governments to 
destroy conventional weapons stockpiles around the world; and 
(2) the United States' ability to provide assistance to foreign 
governments aimed at helping them detect and interdict weapons 
and materials of mass destruction.
    The legislation, which garnered 26 co-sponsors (including 8 
committee members), sought to energize U.S. programs to secure 
lightweight anti-aircraft missiles. As many as 750,000 man-
portable air defense systems exist worldwide and more than 40 
civilian aircraft have been hit by such weapons since the 
1970s. In addition, loose stocks of small arms and other 
weapons help fuel civil wars in Africa and elsewhere and 
provide the means for attacks on peacekeepers and aid workers 
seeking to stabilize war-torn societies. In Iraq, unsecured 
stockpiles of artillery shells and ammunition have been 
reconfigured into improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that have 
become an effective weapon for insurgents. The initiative was 
modeled after the Nunn-Lugar program that focuses on weapons of 
mass destruction in the former Soviet Union. The legislation 
was signed into law on January 11, 2007, as a part of H.R. 
6060, the Department of State Authorities Act of 2006.
    Building on the committee's work in the 108th Congress on 
issues related to HIV/AIDS, Chairman Lugar introduced the 
Assistance for Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in 
Developing Countries Act on February 10, 2005. Eleven Senators 
co-sponsored the bill (S. 350), including committee members 
Boxer, Chafee, Coleman, Feingold, Hagel, and Murkowski. A 
companion bill (H.R. 1409) was introduced in the House by 
Representatives Henry Hyde and Barbara Lee. The bill passed the 
House of Representatives, and it was subsequently passed in the 
Senate by unanimous consent. On November 8, 2005, President 
Bush signed the bill into law in 2005.
    The legislation (P.L. 109-956) required the Administration 
to appoint a Special Advisor for Orphans and Vulnerable 
Children. On March 8, 2006, the President appointed the 
Director of USAID's Office of HIV/AIDS, Dr. Constance A. 
Carrino, to serve in this role. The legislation also required 
the administration to develop a coordinated strategy to assist 
orphans and vulnerable children around the world. The staff of 
the Foreign Relations Committee worked closely with the 
administration and non-governmental organizations in the 
development of such a plan, which was sent to Congress in May 
2006.
    In fulfilling its legislative and oversight 
responsibilities, the committee reported to the full Senate 13 
bills and joint resolutions and seven concurrent and Senate 
resolutions. The table that follows is a tabulation of the 
legislation in this report:
