Pelosi visit Korean DMZ with congressional delegation

August 4th, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she led a congressional delegation to South Korea to visit the Korean Demilitarized Zone that divides North and South Korea.

 Pelosi said in her statement, “It was a privilege to engage with American heroes in uniform on the ground in Korea, led by General Paul LaCamera, Commander, U.S. Forces Korea. During visits to the Demilitarized Zone/Joint Security Area (DMZ/JSA) and Osan Air Base, we conveyed the gratitude of Congress and the Country for the patriotic service of our service members, who stand as sentinels of democracy on the Korean peninsula.”

 The Korean Demilitarized Zone is a 160-mile-long no-man’s land sitting about 30 miles north of Seoul that was established after the 1953 Korean War Armistice Agreement. The Korean DMZ is often described as the most heavily armed border in the world.

 Pelosi said the congressional delegation also visited the Korean capital Seoul and praised what she described as “a strong bond” between the US and South Korea.

 She said, “The United States and South Korea share a strong bond formed for security and forged by decades of warm friendship. Our Congressional delegation travelled to Seoul to reaffirm our treasured ties and our shared commitment to advancing security and stability, economic growth and democratic governance.”

 Pelosi said the delegation was “honoured to be hosted” at a parliamentary meeting “where we reaffirmed our commitment to the U.S.-Korea alliance” and “was pleased to engage in a phone meeting with Korea’s President Yoon Suk-yeol.”

 Providing a readout of the call, House Speaker said, “we thanked the President for Korea’s hospitality of 28,000 U.S. Servicemembers and their families. Each Member engaged in conversation with the President, highlighting areas of continued cooperation to advance a free and open Indo-Pacific.”
