Rep. Young Kim

Washington, DC– Today, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40), Chairwoman of the Indo-Pacific Subcommittee, released a statement with House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (TX-10), Ranking Member Gregory Meeks (NY-05), and Indo-Pacific Subcommittee Ranking Member Ami Bera (CA-06) ahead of the upcoming trilateral summit between the United States, the Republic of Korea, and Japan.

“We welcome Prime Minister Kishida and President Yoon to the United States for the Trilateral Leaders Summit at Camp David. As the United States strengthens our already strong alliances with both Japan and South Korea, elevating our trilateral relationship is key to maintaining a free and open Indo-Pacific and a rules-based international order. We applaud both leaders for addressing historic differences to promote our shared values, enhance prosperity, and expand our economic and defense cooperation in the Indo-Pacific to address shared challenges,” the members said.

Chairwoman Kim also sent two letters to President Biden ahead of the trilateral summit, including:

  • bicameral letter with Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) urging President Biden to ensure energy cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region is discussed during the trilateral summit; and,
  • bipartisan letter with Rep. Joaquin Castro (TX-20) urging President Biden to include global development and health cooperation in the summit agenda.
