“South Korea is one the United States’ closest allies. For decades we have worked together to bring peace to the Asia-Pacific region and strengthen both of our economies. I am glad to see that legislation first passed out of my subcommittee with strong support has finally been sent to the President’s desk. The agreement today makes sure that the billions of dollars in trade between our two nuclear industries can continue while our two governments continue to work through a more long-term agreement. As unanimous passage shows, the US relationship with South Korea has the broad support of the American people.”
