Entering the meeting, the Members released the following statement:

“Over the last weeks, we have been listening to our constituents and speaking with our fellow Members of Congress — in both parties and in both chambers. There is strong agreement across the aisle and around the country: We must reopen the government.  Our security, safety, and economy have been compromised, and millions of families are suffering.

“There is also strong agreement that if we reopen the government, the possibility exists to work together and find common ground to tackle some of our country’s toughest problems and fix them. But that conversation can only begin in earnest once the government is reopened. We accepted the White House’s invitation to meet today to convey that message.”

Seoul South Korea,  South Korean President Moon Jae-in said today that North Korea has expressed a commitment to “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula, and is not seeking conditions.

“They have not attached any conditions that the U.S. cannot accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops from South Korea. All they are talking about is the end of hostile policies against North Korea, followed by a guarantee of security.” He added that a deal could be reached that includes denuclearization, a peace treaty, and normalization of relations between the two Koreas and the United States.

Moon’s announcement comes following President Trump’s statement that he’d walk away from talks if he didn’t think they were producing results. Trump also said during a news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that his campaign of “maximum pressure” on North Korea would continue until Pyongyang gave up its nuclear weapons.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo visited North Korea last week and formed a “good relationship” with Kim Jong Un. A summit between the Korean leaders and President Trump is planned for May or June.
