LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate)–Following North Korea’s most recent missile launch today, U.S. Senators Jon Tester and Heidi Heitkamp are calling on President Trump to appoint a special envoy to ensure the United States is using every diplomatic tool possible to ensure the safety and security of the American people.
In a letter to the President, the senators requested that a Special Envoy to the Korean Peninsula be tasked with easing regional tensions and bringing regional powers and allies to the table.
“We write with deep concern about North Korea’s dangerous behavior and acceleration of its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs, which threaten our national security,” the senators wrote. “The United States cannot sit idly by as a dangerous dictator threatens our families, our freedoms, and America’s standing in the world.”
