A U.S. lawmaker has submitted to Congress a draft resolution on the 70th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japan's colonial rule. The draft, submitted to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs by Rep. Grace Meng from the state of New York, highlights the 62-year alliance between Korea and the U.S.
"The thousands of patriots, including innocent civilians, who died, were imprisoned or otherwise dedicated their lives to achieving liberation serve as a testament of [Korea's] enduring strength," it reads in part. Meng is of Chinese origin and married to a Korean American.
