QUEENS, NY – Today, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY), a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations – which has oversight over the U.S. State Department – spoke with South Korea’s Ambassador to the United States Soo-Hyuck Lee.
The two spoke by phone this morning about key issues of mutual interest including the ROK-US alliance and the situation on the Korean Peninsula.
During the call, Meng also praised South Korea for the tremendous job it did in combatting COVID-19, and how she has publicly commended the country for its proactive efforts to fight the spread of the virus.
