Washington, D.C—U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement after the Kim regime tested an intercontinental ballistic missile.
“In testing another intercontinental ballistic missile today, North Korea is attempting to master the capability to deliver a nuclear warhead against the American homeland. The United States, South Korea, Japan and other nations, including China, must continue maximizing pressure against the regime in Pyongyang with the goal of achieving the verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. I urge Congress to quickly pass pending bills seeking to increase sanctions against enablers of North Korea’s growing nuclear and missile threats, and to hold the Kim regime fully accountable for its egregious human rights abuses against its own people.”
