Casey Statement on North Korea Summit

Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement following the summit between the United States and North Korea:

“North Korea’s nuclear weapons program represents a grave threat to our national security and that of our allies. I remain optimistic that yesterday’s summit in Singapore may be a first step toward achieving a robust and verifiable nuclear agreement.

However, I am concerned by the President’s statement that he would end joint military exercises with South Korea. It would be a mistake to turn our backs on our regional allies. 

The Kim regime is a serial abuser of human rights. I urge President Trump and Secretary Pompeo to keep these concerns in mind and to implement a robust diplomatic strategy that keeps America safe.”
