LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
South Bend, Ind. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly today released the following statement after the Administration announced new sanctions on 56 North Korean aligned entities and vessels.

Donnelly, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said, “North Korea and the Kim regime pose a serious threat to American security. These additional sanctions are necessary to continue and increase pressure on the regime. I look forward to reviewing the Administration’s comprehensive strategy for addressing this threat in the coming weeks.”
