President Trump to announce next week whether to designate DPRK state sponsor of terrorism

NHK reported at noon that White House Press Secretary Sanders told reporters on Thursday that President Trump will announce early next week whether or not he will put North Korea back on the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. The network said while the Bush administration removed North Korea from the list of state sponsors of terrorism in 2008, there are growing calls from Congress to put the nation back on the list following such incidents as the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s brother, Kim Jong Nam. The network said the DPRK is likely to react sharply if it is put back on the list.
