Rep. Kim Joins Congressional Meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.

Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Young Kim (CA-39), one of the first Korean American women to serve in Congress and Vice Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia and Nonproliferation, joined a bipartisan congressional delegation to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday, May 20, 2021.

At the meeting, the members shared their commitment to strengthen the nations’ bilateral partnership and advance shared U.S.-South Korea priorities to help counter threats from North Korea, promote human rights and foster our partnership with key allies for future generations.

“South Korea is an important ally of the United States and a needed partner in countering the threats North Korea has posed to both of our countries,” said Kim. “As an immigrant from South Korea and one of the first Korean American women to serve in Congress, I am honored to have been able to meet with President Moon and share my commitment to him to promote our countries’ shared interests. I will do my part to strengthen legislative priorities and bilateral relationship through my involvement as co-chair of the Congressional Study Group on Korea, US-ROK Interparliamentary Exchange and on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

Rep. Kim recently outlined her thoughts on US-South Korea policy priorities for Washington Examiner and introduced the bipartisan Partner with Korea Act with Rep. Gerry Connolly (VA-11). Photos courtesy of House Creative Services can be found here.
