Secretary Blinken hints at possible additional sanctions on North Korea

NHK reported this afternoon that during an interview with NBC News that was aired on Monday, Secretary of State Blinken expressed the view that North Korea has advanced its nuclear and missile development programs despite the three summit meetings between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Trump and said that under instructions from President Biden, he is reviewing the U.S. policy on North Korea “across the board.” The network said that when asked on what conditions the President would agree to hold a summit with the North Korean leader, Secretary Blinken did not give a concrete answer and said he is reviewing U.S. policy, including the possibility of further sanctions on the DPRK.

 

Concerning China’s actions in Hong Kong, the Secretary reportedly called these egregious acts and added that the U.S. should also consider accepting people who flee from Hong Kong by saying: “If they’re the victims of repression from Chinese authorities, we should do something to give them haven.”
