Chairman Mike Turner (OH-10) of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces released the following statement following a report that North Korea is producing missile-ready nuclear weapons:

“China has to step up to the plate and take a firm stance that North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons programs are unacceptable. The threat North Korea poses to global stability grows daily under its erratic regime. China must be responsible for bringing North Korea to the table with the international community to discuss a de-escalation and surrender of its advanced weapons capabilities.”
