Gardner Applauds VP Pence Visit to DMZ

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy, released the below statement regarding Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to the DMZ:

 

“I applaud Vice President Pence for sending a message to the world that the era of strategic patience is over. The Vice President’s visit to the Korean Peninsula should be a stern reminder to the madman in Pyongyang that the United States will not sit idly by while he tries to hold the world hostage with his illicit arsenal of mass destruction.

 

“This trip to the region is also an important reassurance signal to our allies that the United States is committed to engagement and leadership in the Asia-Pacific region. Together, we will counter the North Korean regime’s belligerence and boost our economic ties with our allies, which will create more high-paying jobs here at home. I look forward to working with the President, the Vice President, and the entire Administration to reassert American leadership in the region and put America first.”
