Today, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released the following statement on the UN vote to further sanctions on North Korea and the threats of retaliation from the Kim regime:
"I'm pleased to see the United Nations voted 15-0 for sanctions on North Korea over the weekend. It's critical that China takes a larger role in stopping the North Korean aggression and missile programs, and their vote in favor of tighter sanctions on North Korea is a very good start on that mission. Unsurprisingly, Kim Jong-Un has vowed to retaliate against the United States. While we must do more to build up our defenses and our detection technology, it is also critical that we have the international community supporting us and our efforts in thwarting North Korea's use of ballistic weapons."
