Idaho is home to a large Basque diaspora and Risch issued a news release about the visit. “I was pleased to welcome President Urkullu to Washington, D.C., and converse about his country, his government, and the Basque peoples’ strong ties to the United States.  With their unique cuisine, language and cultural traditions, the Basque people have enriched the state of Idaho over the decades, and I was honored to host the leader of the Basques in my office,” said Risch.
