Senator David Perdue Comments On Re-Designation Of North Korea As A State Sponsor Of Terrorism

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on President Trump’s action to re-designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism and impose additional sanctions on the country:

"Since being removed from the state sponsors of terrorism list in 2008, North Korea has proven through actions like the Sony hack and the chemical weapons hit on Kim Jong Nam that it continues to be a global terror threat. President Trump is right to send the message that the U.S. will not sit back and allow North Korea to continue these provocative actions. Reigning in North Korea’s destabilizing behavior will require support and cooperation from all countries in the region, not just our allies. During President Trump’s recent trip to Asia, he worked to strengthen partnerships with these countries to put more pressure on North Korea. This designation and these additional sanctions reaffirm President Trump’s commitment to stand firm against North Korean provocations, and a nuclear North Korea.”
