Press Releases

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) released the following statement Wednesday responding to news that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is returning from North Korea with three American detainees.

"I am very pleased by the news today that three Americans have been freed from their detention in North Korea,” Sen. Mike Lee said. “Unfortunately, there are still other Americans detained by the regime, some of whom have never even been acknowledged. I hope that as President Trump meets with Kim Jong Un in the coming weeks that the North Korean government is pressed to provide a full accounting of all detainees in the country.”
