March 9, 2018

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Friday responding to news that President Trump had agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“I believe diplomacy is the best tool to address the escalation of continued military provocation from North Korea and I am hopeful this meeting will be fruitful,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said. “The situation in North Korea is dire - both for those living there and those affected by the regime – but military engagement in the Pacific would also come at a high cost. I am hopeful that these negotiations will lead to cessation of reckless weapons–wielding and needless human suffering.”
