Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement reiterating the request to the Trump Administration to brief the full House on the North Korea summit and the status of North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs:

“Nuclear nonproliferation is a pillar of America’s national security, and serious diplomatic efforts to achieve that goal on the Korean peninsula must be respected and supported.  Sadly, it has taken President Trump two summits to figure out that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is not committed to denuclearization.  Disturbingly, the IAEA this week reported indications of ongoing nuclear weapons production-related activities by North Korea at the Yongbyon complex.

“The Congress has a solemn, long-established responsibility to conduct oversight of the Executive branch on matters of national security.  To honor that responsibility and the oath that all Members take, I reiterate my request made last week to the Administration to brief the full House on the North Korea summit and the status of North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

“As Members of Congress, we must honor our responsibility to ensure that our government shows smart, strong, and strategic leadership to keep the American people and our allies safe.”
