Los Angeles, CA - Korean American Coalition Executive Director Joon Bang issued the below statement following the announcement from the South Korean delegation at the White House on March 8th, 2018.
“We are cautiously optimistic about President Trump’s decision to meet with Kim Jong Un. It is also necessary to acknowledge South Korea’s President Moon Jae In and his ongoing diplomatic efforts that has brought us to this point. Coming off the heels of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics, this is very much welcomed news. The United States and South Korea must continue to work together and pursue diplomatic negotiations with North Korea. We are hopeful, because this is the first step in the right direction.”
