Washington, DC – U.S. Senator John Kerry, Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, today released a statement following the announcement that North Korea had launched a rocket with an attached satellite.

"It’s ‘Groundhog Day’ once again with another provocative and destabilizing act in direct violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions. It will only succeed in further isolating an already isolated North Korea, and the United States, our allies, and our partners will take appropriate steps to safeguard our national security."
