Secretary Pompeo stresses sanctions to remain in place until denuclearization is complete

NTV, Fuji TV, and TV Asahi reported at noon that while Secretary of State Pompeo said at the UNSC ministerial meeting in New York that he will visit North Korea to conduct coordination on a second summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim, he also stressed that the U.S. will not ease sanctions on North Korea. The network showed the Secretary saying: “Until the final denuclearization of the DPRK is achieved and fully verified, it is our solemn collective responsibility to fully implement all UN Security Council resolutions pertaining to North Korea.” Meanwhile, Fuji TV said the foreign ministers of China and Russia claimed that sanctions against North Korea should be eased in light of recent developments, adding that the rift between the U.S. side and China and Russia over the DPRK stood out once again.
