WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Speaker J.
Dennis Hastert (R-IL) made the following statement
regarding U.S. relations with North Korea:

"Kim Jong-Il's regime has threatened the stability of
a region and the security of the world. He has
demonstrated complete and utter disregard for the
international community's nonproliferation efforts.
Consequences must be swift and severe. I strongly
support President Bush's leadership on this issue.

"Shipping in and out of North Korea must now be
considered illicit until proven otherwise and the
United States must now lead the international
community in full inspections of all North Korean
imports and exports. It is imperative that the
international community and members of the UN Security
Council step to the plate and stop this reckless
regime. This cannot stand."
