US to continue sanctions on North Korea
The US will continue enforcing UN sanctions on North Korea for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday.
Mr. Pompeo told reporters at the State Department that he hoped the UN sanctions committee would publish the original document that they intended to publish which shows clear activities related to sanctions and sanctions violations. He noted that the United States is as committed as ever to continuing to enforce those U.N. Security Council resolutions. We believe they are central to President Trump's efforts to convince Chairman Kim that full, final denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is necessary.
Pompeo added that the United States was continuing to have many conversations with the North Koreans about how to effectuate achieving all of the commitments made at a June 12 summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
