Senator Collins’ Statement on North Korea

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Susan Collins issued this statement on North Korea:

“Given the credible and serious threat North Korea poses to our country, and in particular to U.S. forces and our allies in the region, I welcome the Administration's success in securing new economic sanctions against North Korea at the UN. The unanimous passage of these strict sanctions, the economic pressure they will exert on North Korea, and the fact that the Chinese government voted for the sanctions are significant developments that I hope will lead Kim Jong Un to curtail his extremely dangerous and destabilizing pursuit of nuclear weapons.”
