Warren Statement on the United States-North Korea Summit

Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) today released the following statement after the conclusion of the United States-North Korea Summit:

"Yesterday's photo op doesn't change the fact that a nuclear-armed North Korea is a threat to the security of the United States, our allies, and the world. Generations of North Korean leaders have made and broken promises before -- this Administration's success will be judged on whether it can eliminate Kim's nuclear weapons and verify they are gone. We're at the beginning of a diplomatic process that will require patience, experience, and close coordination with our allies. I want to see the President succeed, but a handshake is no substitute for a binding, verifiable deal."
