North Korea must drop nuclear, missile programs to achieve progress: U.S.

A senior U.S. arms control official said on Tuesday the only way for North Korea to achieve security and development is to abandon all of its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs.

The Hanoi summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un last month broke down over differences about U.S. demands for Pyongyang to denuclearize, as well as Pyongyang’s demand for major relief from international sanctions imposed for its nuclear and missile tests, which it pursued for years in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

“North Korea must understand that the only way to achieve the security and development that it seeks is to abandon all of its weapons of mass destruction, all of its ballistic missile programs as numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions demand,” said Yleem Poblete, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance.
