FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SENATOR AGUON INVITES THE HONORABLE SECRETARY JOHN F. KERRY TO GUAM
In a letter sent today to the Honorable Secretary of State, John F. Kerry, who will be visiting the region within the next few days, Senator Frank B. Aguon, Jr. extended an invitation to Secretary Kerry to visit Guam and her people.
Senator Aguon states in the letter, “Although the citizenry maintain their confidence in the U.S. Military’s Defenses and that of their International Allies, the escalating acts of defiance from the North Korean Government have evoked accounts of life and tensions before, during, and after World War II on our island of Guam.” He concludes, “As we await a final resolution and hopefully a peaceful outcome to the present situation, I would like to extend a personal invitation to you to visit our beautiful island of Guam to alleviate any uncertainties of both the civilian and military communities of this westernmost U.S. Territory.”
