Mark Kennedy on Foreign Policy
Republican Representative (MN-6)
KENNEDY: We need to continue to ratchet up the diplomatic efforts. We also need to continue to push China. They have far more influence over North Korea.
Q: Pres. Bush said, "We will not tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea." Do we hold him to his commitment?
KENNEDY: But he also said that we want to have a peaceful and diplomatic solution. So we have to push every channel we can to achieve it in a peaceful and diplomatic way, not taking anything off the table.
Q: If Bush leaves office with nuclear devices in North Korea, will it have been a failed policy?
KENNEDY: We need to take every step we can to prevent that from happening.
Q: If the North Koreans ignore the sanctions, what do we do?
KLOBUCHAR: We have to keep ratcheting things up. Keeping the military option on the table is key, but sanctions are the first step, Unlike how we handled Iraq or where it was "Go it alone," we have to work with our allies.
