ICYMI: REP. LIEU QUESTIONS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S APPROACH TO NORTH KOREA

Mr. Lieu questions witnesses from the State and Treasury Departments during the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on North Korea.

“I served on active duty under U.S. Pacific Command in the 1990s in Guam. We did a whole series of different exercises, most of them directed at North Korea, and it was very clear – there were no good military options.”

“If we are going to pursue diplomacy, it would be a good idea to have an ambassador to South Korea that can help us. [Without one] it does send a message that we are not pursuing diplomacy seriously and that we are disrespecting our critical ally, South Korea. I urge the Trump Administration to get its act together and nominate an ambassador to South Korea.”
