Statement on North Korea

Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo today issued the following statement on North Korea.

“Recent reports regarding North Korea’s nuclear capabilities are deeply troubling, but I remain confident that Guam remains safe and protected. President Trump must work in partnership with the international community to de-escalate the growing tensions in the region and prevent North Korea from advancing its nuclear program further. While the recent sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council were an effort to demonstrate to Kim Jung-Un that his actions will not go unanswered, President Trump must show steady leadership as these sanctions are carried out.  The international community has clearly stated, through the UN Security Council, that North Korea’s escalatory actions are an international problem, and we must continue to engage our partners and allies to bring a peaceful resolution to the North Korean threat. Again I want to reiterate that Guam remains safe, and I am confident in the ability of U.S. defenses to protect our island and allies in the region.”
