Boyle Condemns North Korea’s Nuclear Test
Washington, DC– Congressman Brendan Boyle (PA-13) released the following statement today in response to reports that North Korea has tested a nuclear device:
"Today's actions involving the detonation of a nuclear warhead by North Korea are deeply troubling. Kim Jong-un's continued actions are clearly intended to provoke and destabilize that region of the world. This latest test is an escalation that sends a clear message that North Korea has no interest in being a responsible member of the international community. I support President Obama's declaration this morning that he will continue to work with the U.N. Security Council and international community to impose additional penalties and sanctions upon North Korea as a result of this and previous actions."
Congressman Boyle is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
