173

Guam – In reaction to North Korea’s shelling of a South Korean Island yesterday [Tuesday] Guam Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo has issued a statment of re-assurance that the incident does not threaten Guam. The statement reads:

“I have been briefed by officials at the Department of Defense about the situation in South Korea. I was informed that this situation poses no immediate threat to our island; however we will continue to monitor this situation.  This blatant attack against our ally, South Korea, is in clear violation of international law and the sovereign rights of South Korea.  This attack by North Korea is a reminder of the importance of the United States remaining a vigilant and visible power in the Asia-Pacific region.  Further, it highlights the importance of realigning our military forces in this region to be better postured to address destabilizing events.”
