Rep. Young Kim Leads Congressional Delegation to South China Sea

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40), Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Indo-Pacific Subcommittee, released a statement congratulating Special Envoy on North Korean Human Rights Issues Julie Turner for officially being sworn in by the State Department on October 13, 2023.

“I congratulate Julie Turner on being sworn in as Special Envoy on North Korean Human Rights Issues and am grateful this important role is filled after a six-year vacancy,” said Rep. Kim. “Supporting the human rights of the North Korean people should be treated like a vital component of our North Korea policy, which is why I have been urging the Biden administration to fill this Special Envoy position since I have been in Congress. I look forward to working together to support the human rights of the North Korean people and push back against the Kim regime.”

Rep. Kim has prioritized North Korea Human Rights through her work in Congress. She reintroduced the North Korean Human Rights Reauthorization Act, which includes initiatives that the Congresswoman has worked on such as:

  • Reuniting Korean American divided families with their war-torn loved ones;
  • Supporting U.S. Agency for Global Media’s broadcasting efforts to promote freedom of information in North Korea; and,
  • Ensuring the delivery and distribution of humanitarian aid goes to the people of North Korea and does not support military operations.
