Ambassador Mark Lippert
December 9, 2016 :

“The alliance is strong and will continue to be strong. We expect policy consistency and continuity across a range of fronts, including: DPRK, other regional issues, and international economics and trade. We will continue to work closely with the government. And, going forward we will continue to monitor the [domestic political] situation closely. But, obviously, this decision is a domestic issue and it is ultimately up to the Korean people and their democratic institutions.”
