Rep. Young Kim

Washington, DC – Last month, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40), who serves as Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Indo-Pacific Subcommittee, led a bipartisan Congressional delegation (CODEL) to Southeast Asia, including to Vietnam.  

In Vietnam, Chairwoman Kim met with government officials, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), families of political prisoners, as well as dissidents and activists.  

Throughout her visits, Chairwoman Kim continuously pressed officials on human rights issues in Vietnam and for an update of the status of remains of American and South Vietnamese missing or deceased service members.  

“As the representative of many constituents who fled Vietnam and a Korean American with relatives who defected North Korea in the aftermath of the Korean War, supporting human rights is deeply personal to me and important to my work as Chairwoman of the Indo-Pacific Subcommittee,” said Rep. Young Kim. “I appreciated the opportunity to engage with government officials on human rights and press for updates on remains of prisoners of war – both issues very important to my constituents – during these meetings.”
