Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the announcement that President Trump has agreed to meet with Kim Jong-un:

"The patterns of U.S.-North Korea crises are well-worn and North Korea's nuclear and missile capabilities are obvious. A summit could possibly break those patterns and lead to the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. But we must remain deeply skeptical of North Korea's intentions and under no circumstances should the United States and our allies grant unilateral concessions."
