Guam congresswoman calls for peaceful resolution in wake of threat

Posted: Updated:

Guam congressional delegate Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo was quick to respond after North Korea threat of the possibility of launching a missile towards Guam. She wrote, "North Korea's most recent threat to target Guam is dangerous and it further heightens tensions in our region.

"While we have heard threats like this in the past, I take them very seriously and continue to engage with our DOD partners to ensure that Guam and our people remain safe."

Bordallo added, "The President's tweet earlier today is concerning and unhelpful and does not lay out a clear strategy on how he will address the growing threats from North Korea. Kim Jung-Un's reckless behavior cannot be tolerated, and I strongly urge the President to explore every avenue to peacefully respond to it and avoid further escalating this situation."
