 US Senior Officials: If North Korea is unwilling to give up its nuclear weapons, the United States will strengthen sanctions


Bolton said in an interview with Fox Business News TV that day that after the second meeting between the leaders of the United States and the DPRK, the DPRK may make a decision to show its sincerity in dialogue with the United States and its commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. If the DPRK is unwilling to do so, the United States will not lift the sanctions against the country, but will seek to add weight to the sanctions.

Earlier in the day, the NBC website quoted a study published by experts on the Korean Peninsula from the United States as saying that after the Hanoi meeting, North Korea began to seek a rapid reconstruction of the long-range rocket launch site in the West China Sea Satellite Launch Site.

Recently, Bolton defended the outcome of the second meeting between the leaders of the United States and the DPRK in interviews with several American media, saying that the leaders of the two countries had talked on a large number of issues and that their relations had also been strengthened. He also said that North Korea had made limited concessions in exchange for the lifting of U.S. sanctions by abandoning its nuclear weapons, but U.S. President Trump was fully prepared to continue dialogue with the DPRK and was optimistic about the prospects for negotiations.

The second meeting between US and DPRK leaders was held in Hanoi, Vietnam, from 27 to 28 February, but it ended earlier than planned. Due to differences in lifting sanctions and denuclearization measures against the DPRK, the two sides failed to sign a common document.
