North Korea: US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pledges support for denuclearization
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pledged her support to North Korea’s denuclearization this week as she continued her tour of Asia. The pledge comes amidst tensions in the Korean peninsula.
Pelosi visited South Korea and met with her South Korean counterpart, National Assembly Speaker Kim Jin-pyo. Pelosi and Kim issued a joint statement following the meeting, pledging to support deterrence against North Korea and its denuclearization.
“We agreed to support the efforts of the two governments to achieve practical denuclearization and peace through international cooperation and diplomatic dialogue based on the strong and extended deterrence against the North,” said the statement.
During a news conference, Pelosi also said that she and Kim discussed ways to boost cooperation between the two countries in terms of regional security, economic, and climate issues.
Pelosi arrived in South Korea Wednesday following her visit to Taiwan, which drew the ire of China and led to increased military activity in the area.
While President Yoon Suk-yeol did not meet with Pelosi during her visit, the two spoke to each other on the phone where Yoon promised close cooperation between South Korea and the US, according to South Korean deputy national security adviser Kim Tae-pyo.
In a separate statement released by the South Korean presidential office, Yoon also said in his call with Pelosi that he hopes to meet with her when he travels to Washington. This comes amidst speculation that Yoon did not meet with Pelosi in person to avoid further antagonizing China.

“It is the peak of busy blaming that the United States alleges somebody’s nuclear threats given the fact that it is the kingpin of nuclear proliferation,” Pyongyang said in the statement, adding that it withdrew from the proliferation treaty a long time ago. Therefore no one has the right to encroach on the country’s right to defend itself.
