Press Release

Hagåtña, Guam – Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo today issued the following statement regarding recent reports of a North Korea missile launch.

“I am very concerned by North Korea’s recent actions and most recent ballistic missile launch. This latest test is irresponsible and it further destabilizes the region. Their continued defiance of the international community cannot be tolerated. I hope the Trump Administration will take action to prevent any further escalation and reassure our allies and partners in the region. However, I am confident the current defense capabilities on Guam, including the continued THAAD deployment, will protect our island as we continue to monitor the situation and actions of North Korea.”
