REP LIEU STATEMENT ON HISTORIC MEETING BETWEEN SOUTH AND NORTH KOREA
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met yesterday to work towards denuclearization and an official end to the Korean War.
“I am pleased that the leaders of South and North Korea had a productive meeting yesterday. This historic event is the first step in the long journey towards peace on the Peninsula and I applaud efforts to reach an agreement without military escalation. There will undoubtedly be many challenges that come with ending 65 years of aggression and mistrust. Diplomacy is not easy – but is it always preferable to war.”
