Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) made the following statement after North Korea reportedly tested a ballistic missile:

“This most recent ballistic missile test from North Korea is a clear provocation and demonstrates the regime’s intent to continue its aggression towards the American families and our allies of South Korea and Japan. I am grateful that Congress put a strong, comprehensive sanctions package on the President’s desk this week that targets Pyongyang. I also look forward to working with the President to explore other methods for putting pressure on this rogue regime to promote peace through strength.

“I sincerely hope that this recent missile test, aimed at an ally in the region, will prompt China to work with the United States in exerting pressure on North Korea.”
