Duncan Statement on North Korea

Mar 9, 2018 Issues: Foreign Affairs

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statement after hearing that President Trump has agreed to meet with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, in the coming months:

"President Trump's extreme pressure on the brutal North Korean regime has proven to be the right approach. A denuclearized and stable Korean peninsula is in the best interest of the United States and our allies, and it's encouraging to see the President's exemplary leadership bring us to this moment.

"While we are hopeful that this represents progress, we must remain vigilant and continue to apply the harshest sanctions possible until the threat is subdued for good.”
