Jun 12, 2018
Press Release

Washington D.C. – Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, gave the following statement:

The meeting between President Trump and Kim Jung Un is not only historic but I hope the beginning of a solution to a tenuous situation that has gone on way too long on the Korean Peninsula. This meeting marks the start of what some only a few months ago thought would never happen; the negotiations to start the denuclearization of the Kim regime and peace to the region.  This will be a meeting by meeting process to accomplish the goals that will get negotiated in the future.

“I congratulate President Trump for his bold moves that forged this historic meeting.  He illustrated by his strong stance and showing that only from a position of strength can one negotiate peace. I also want to commend the North Korean leader, Mr. Kim for his willingness to step forward to start a process to end the 61 year old conflict of the Korean War and to bring his country and people into the 21st century.”
