This afternoon, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) met with Her Excellency Kang Kyung-wha, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea, to discuss the importance of the U.S.-South Korea alliance, including strengthening the economic partnership and their shared concern over the urgent threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
