"I was pleased to receive President Park at today's joint session of Congress where she affirmed the importance of the strong U.S. – Republic of Korea alliance that still remains today. Nearly sixty years after the end of the Korean War, this partnership is as important as ever at a time when stability in Northeast Asia is threatened by North Korean saber-rattling.
