Bordallo: N. Korea rocket launch provocative act


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo issued the following statement on the recent rocket launch by North Korea.

“North Korea’s recent launch of a supposed space satellite is nothing more than a provocative act masked to test a long range missile with offensive military implications. North Korea’s continued aggressive actions are dangerous and destabilizing to our region. I appreciate the efforts of Secretary of State John Kerry, and the Obama Administration, to try to restart the 6-party talks, and urge China and Russia to support sanctions against North Korea. I am concerned that China and Russia continue to block efforts to impose sanctions or take other actions to get North Korea to stop acting in an aggressive manner.

“The United States stands by South Korea, and Guam will continue to play an important role in supporting our allies in the Asia-Pacific region. I am confident that our island remains safe from any threats from North Korea. However, we must do more to encourage China and Russia to act responsibly and encourage North Korea to dial down their provocative actions.”
