Smith Statement on North Korea Summit

Jun 12, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement following the U.S.-North Korea summit in Singapore.

Statement by Smith:

President Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un is a vital and positive step forward. The path ahead will not be easy, but I believe President Trump and his national security team are fully capable of recognizing real progress as opposed to hollow promises. President Reagan confronted longtime adversaries on the basis of “trust, but verify,” and any worthwhile agreement with North Korea will include nothing less than complete and verifiable denuclearization.
