U.S. urges North Korea to refrain from further provocations

Kyodo News reported from Washington that the United States urged North Korea on Thursday to refrain from further provocations following its launch of two new short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan. “We urge no more provocations,” State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said at a press briefing. “We want to have diplomatic engagement with the North Koreans…. We continue to press and hope for these working-level negotiations to move forward.” She added that sanctions “will remain in effect” until the United States achieves the goal of denuclearizing North Korea.
