Aug 7, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to sanction North Korea: 

“The unanimous passage of the most substantial sanctions against North Korea at the United Nations is a remarkable win for both President Donald Trump and Ambassador Nikki Haley. Indeed, it goes to show that we must work with our international partners, like China, in order to enact and enforce meaningful sanctions against the communist, totalitarian regime in Pyongyang.

“The success this weekend comes after the State Department enacted responsible travel restrictions to North Korea, similar to the North Korea Travel Control Act, to prevent tourist travel to a regime that uses all available resources to advance their weapons program and subjugate its own citizens.”
