Foreign Affairs Committee Passes Rep. Wilson’s Resolution
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.”
