Supporting talks with North Korea

May 13, 2018

This week I cosponsored H. Res. 861 which supports the President’s diplomatic efforts on the Korean peninsula and the upcoming summit with Kim Jong-un. We are committed to peace and want to ensure the denuclearization of North Korea. In January I said that the leaders of the countries should find ways to de-escalate tensions in the region and stop the name calling and threats. Diplomacy is a much better path to ensure that war does not erupt and I fully support our recent diplomatic efforts and serious dialogue between the two nations.
