Moulton Leads on U.S. Response to North Korea’s Missile Testing
April 3rd, 2017
Moulton: “I urge the United States to apply all available sanctions on North Korea and push China to enforce existing sanctions.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congress passed a bipartisan resolution condemning North Korea’s development of multiple intercontinental ballistic missiles and calling on the United States to apply all available economic sanctions on North Korea. Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA), an original co-sponsor on the resolution, released the following statement:
“The United States will not stand for North Korea’s dangerous and illegal missile testing. This resolution sends a strong, bipartisan message to both North Korea and to our allies that these actions have consequences. I urge the Administration to apply all available sanctions to North Korea and push China to enforce existing sanctions as well.”
As Chinese President Xi Jinping prepares to visit the United States and meet with President Trump this week, Moulton will closely monitor the Administration’s response to North Korea’s destabilizing and provocative actions to ensure our allies are supported and our nation is kept safe.
