Secretary Pompeo says North Korea continues to produce fissile materials

NHK reported online this morning that Secretary Pompeo testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday. Although the Secretary reportedly welcomed the recent moves by North Korea to dismantle some of the facilities at its missile test site, when asked by a senator whether North Korea is continuing to produce nuclear materials, he reportedly responded: “Yes, that’s correct … Yes, they continue to produce fissile material.” The network said although many senators voiced doubt about whether North Korea will denuclearize, the Secretary reportedly responded that North Korea understands the meaning of denuclearization agreed upon at the summit and stressed that the U.S. is aiming to realize full denuclearization during the President’s current term.
