Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., on Monday called on 21 countries to diplomatically and economically isolate North Korea, "until it fully and irreversibly commits to peaceful denuclearization."

"I write to respectfully urge your government to immediately cease all official diplomatic and economic relations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), including immediately closing all of your diplomatic facilities in the DPRK," Gardner wrote in a letter to China's ambassador Cui Tianki.

"Now is the time to diplomatically and economically isolate this regime, until it fully and irreversibly commits to peaceful denuclearization. Maintaining official diplomatic relations with a regime that continues to defy international law and threaten nations across the globe only serves to reward nefarious behavior."

He plans to send identical copies to ambassadors of Brazil, the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russia, Sweden, and Vietnam.

His plea comes after Pyongyang fired another mid-range ballistic missile over Japan Friday and conducted its most powerful nuclear test Sept. 3.

Gardner, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity, also called on the United Nations to expel North Korea from the international body.
