Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02), a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today released the following statement on House passage of the Otto Warmbier North Korea Nuclear Sanctions Act:

”University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier was a bright young man whose murder reminded the world of the brutality of North Korea’s regime. North Korea poses a dangerous threat to our allies, and the passage of these sanctions is another step toward stopping North Korea before it has the capacity to strike the United States.”

Earlier this year and prior to Warmbier’s release, Congressman Wilson and Congressmen Adam Schiff introduced the bipartisan North Korea Travel Control Act, which would ban tourist travel to North Korea. Read about the bill Congressman Wilson and Congressman Schiff introduced here.
