Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) today issued the following statement on the meeting between President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in Singapore:

“President Trump’s move towards engagement with North Korea is historic, bold, and would have been unimaginable – just months ago – given the heightened threat environment from North Korea,” Fortenberry said. “Today’s joint Trump-Kim statement, if fully realized, lays the foundation for a denuclearized Korean Peninsula, a dramatically new and constructive era in U.S.-North Korea relations, and a peaceful and prosperous future for the North and South Korean people.”

Fortenberry is a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations.
