Encouraging peace and reunification on the Korean Peninsula.
Recognizes the historical importance of the Korean War, which began on June 25, 1950. Honors the service and sacrifice of the U.S. Armed Forces and the armed forces of allied countries that have served in Korea since 1950. Reaffirms the commitment of the United States to its alliance with South Korea. Calls on North Korea to respect the fundamental human rights of its citizens, dismantle its nuclear weapons program, and end its nuclear and missile proliferation as integral steps toward peace and eventual reunification.
Why should we have a bad relationship with North Korea? We should at least give an effort to have a better relationship. Kim Jong Un is currently hastening his own downfall. It is only a matter of time before North Korea is exposed. The country has been known for having poverty. There are currently children on the streets there begging everybody who walks by for money to get food. So what needs to happen is the Kim regime needs to get out of power and we need to give the people of North Korea hope.
