The United States would like to congratulate the Republic of Korea on holding successful legislative elections.  The ROK’s dedication to democratic values in the face of a global pandemic is a hallmark of a truly free, open, and transparent society–qualities that are necessary in facing the current crisis, key to the Republic of Korea’s successful management of COVID-19, and a model for others around the world.  We thank the Republic of Korea for its partnership and its commitment to peace and security in the Indo-Pacific.
