Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio released the following statement regarding the death of North Korea’s Kim Jong Il:

"Kim Jong Il was a cruel tyrant who leaves behind unimaginable suffering by the North Korean people. The United States should work with our partners to ensure that this period of transition is seized as an opportunity to persuade North Korea to abandon its hostile nuclear program, open up its society and address the humanitarian crisis that its tyrannical leaders have inflicted."
