Representing the 2th District of South Carolina

Foreign Affairs Committee Passes Rep. Wilson’s Resolution

Mar 29, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after the House Foreign Affairs Committee unanimously passed H.Res. 92, a resolution Congressman Wilson introduced to condemn North Korea’s ballistic missile program and calling for the applicability of all available sanctions:

“North Korea’s increasingly aggressive actions mean it is imperative that Congress send a strong, bipartisan message—testing ballistic missiles and expanding nuclear capabilities will not be tolerated by the United States. As one of only two Members of Congress who have visited Pyongyang, I have seen firsthand the destitution and persecution of the North Korean citizens who deserve to live in such a dynamic democracy as South Korea with its vibrant capitalist success.

“I am grateful that the House Foreign Affairs Committee positively reported my resolution, and I look forward to it being considered on the House Floor.”

Congressman Wilson also spoke in the committee urging the passage of the resolution. Watch his remarks here.
