Whitehouse Statement on North Korea Meeting

Washington, DC – Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un:

“A path to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is welcome, but the announcement President Trump and Chairman Kim made leaves many questions unanswered.  All of the items listed in the announcement have been echoed by past North Korean leaders.  I hope we can progress beyond this list to a meaningful accord that yields lasting peace.”
