Bennet Statement on President Trump Meeting with Kim Jong-Un of North Korea

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement regarding President Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-Un of North Korea:

“North Korea’s nuclear program poses a grave threat to the international community. Any American president deserves support for pursuing a diplomatic approach toward the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.  But North Korea’s track record requires all parties to be cautious about any agreements made by its leader. Comprehensive and real denuclearization will require sustained attention and true commitments.  

“Congress must be vigilant and nonpartisan as it conducts its oversight role on this continuing threat. The administration should fully inform us of the specifics and any commitments made during the President’s recent engagement.”
