Calls on China to cut off oil

WASHINGTON - Congressman Joe Wilson, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness, released the following statement after North Korea’s nuclear missile test and the emergency Security Council meeting:

“North Korea’s latest nuclear missile test was its most provocative to date, putting all American families at risk, and it’s more important than ever that North Korea’s neighbors take the reckless regime’s continual escalation of nuclear threats as seriously as we do. Ambassador Nikki Haley was absolutely right when she urged China – and its President Xi Jingping – to do more to stop North Korea from pushing the world closer to nuclear war. I support Ambassador Haley and President Donald Trump’s national security team, all of whom know that peace through strength is what it takes to keep American families safe, and I join them in calling for China to cut off oil from North Korea.”

Today, Congressman Wilson delivered a One Minute Speech on the House floor praising U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for her stern warning to North Korea.
