Congressman French Hill: North Korea Nuke Test Is Canary in Iranian Uranium Mine

WASHINGTON – Today, after North Korea made claims they successfully tested a nuclear warhead, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the following statement:

 “Despite sanctions and negotiations in the 1990’s similar to what the Iranians agreed to last year, the North Koreans continue to press forward with enhancing their nuclear program. The Obama Administration needs to commit to stopping this activity by working with the economic powers in Asia to force the North Koreans to abandon their nuclear program. Today’s nuke test also serves as a canary in the Iranian uranium mine, and it should be treated as such. The president must change his passive approach in dealing with Iran to avoid a similar situation with them down the road.”
