WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) issued the following statement on the U.S. – North Korea Summit in Vietnam:

“The United States cannot afford to lift sanctions on North Korea without concrete assurances of denuclearization. President Trump made the right move walking away in Hanoi, just as President Reagan walked away from the negotiating table in Reykjavik. President Trump understands that it’s better to strike no deal than a bad deal, especially since we have seen the consequences of a bad nuclear deal with Iran under the Obama Administration. I applaud the President and Secretary Pompeo’s continued dialogue with North Korea regarding the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and their pursuit of an outcome that is in the best interests of our nation and our allies.”
