Cicilline Statement on North Korea

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement today:

“We cannot permit the North Korean regime to have the ability to threaten our country with a nuclear weapon. The United States must work with China and our South Korean and Japanese allies to make clear to Kim Jong-Un that there will be consequences if he continues down this path.”

“This is not a time for escalating rhetoric that threatens to bring the world to the brink of war. It is critical that the Trump administration work carefully, and in close consultation with Congress, to craft a diplomatic solution that results in North Korea giving up their missile program and nuclear weapons for good.”
