“We cannot let our commitment to South Korea waver, especially given our shared sacrifices and mutually beneficial relationship.”


Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) wrote an op-ed on the future of U.S.-North Korea relations in the aftermath of the Singapore Summit. 

Highlights

We cannot let our commitment to South Korea waver, especially given our shared sacrifices and mutually beneficial relationship. History has shown that when our commitment to South Korea is lacking, North Korea will attack.

If the U.S. and North Korea agree on concrete actions towards denuclearization, it is imperative that Pyongyang commits to allowing U.S. and international inspectors access to a broad range of sites within short-notice to ensure the safety of South Korean, Japanese, and American families.

Short-notice inspections and wide access are essential to ensuring North Korea cannot hide a uranium enrichment site, which can be easily disguised and requires only a small amount of energy to operate.

The U.S. alliances with Japan and South Korea form the fundamental bulwark of democracy, security, and freedom in East Asia. Maintaining and building upon these alliances ensures President Donald Trump’s maximum pressure campaign towards North Korea will continue to be successful, and we will be able to build on the positive results of the Singapore Summit.
