Rep. Lujan Grisham Statement on North Korea Summit

Washington, D.C. - Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) released the following statement after President Trump concluded a summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore:

“I support every diplomatic effort to promote peace on the Korean Peninsula and am hopeful that the remains of servicemembers who died in the Korean War will be brought home.

"However, the President and Kim Jong-un’s meeting lacked concrete steps necessary for full North Korean denuclearization while neglecting our commitment to our strong ally, South Korea. The President has given greater legitimacy and recognition on the global stage to a despotic regime that has a history of grave human rights atrocities and breaking international agreements.

"We must retain our position as a global leader and urge the Trump Administration to use strategic and effective diplomacy to produce substantive and lasting concessions from the Kim regime."
