San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on North Korea’s recent test launch of a new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile:
“North Korea’s ICBM launch is a deeply irresponsible and provocative act. A North Korean ICBM with the range suggested by this test is a grave development for the stability of the region and the security of the United States.
“The United States must work with our regional partners, especially Japan and South Korea, to ensure the security of the region. China and Russia must also meet their responsibility to restrain North Korea’s dangerous belligerence. We must be extremely wary of saber-rattling sliding into dangerous escalation.”
