Trump has extended sanctions against North Korea after meeting Kim Jong-UN
US President, Donald trump has decided to extend sanctions against North Korea in connection with risk of distribution of materials that are used for the production of nuclear weapons.
The US President Donald trump has extended for one year sanctions against North Korea. This decision was taken due to the fact that there is “a state of emergency in relation to North Korea”, said the press service of the White house.
Restrictive measures against North Korea were imposed by the Bush administration in June of 2008 and always continued.
This time trump has decided to extend sanctions in connection with risk of distribution used for the production of nuclear weapons materials and taking into account the actions and policies of the DPRK.
“The existence and risk of proliferation of nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula and the actions and policies of the North Korean leadership continues to threaten national security, international politics and the U.S. economy. For this reason … I am continuing for one year the national emergency with respect to North Korea, ” – said in the text of the document.
In addition, the North Korean regime accused of money laundering, cyber attacks, violations of human rights.
After meeting Donald trump, Kim Jong-UN, was held on June 12 in Singapore, it was reported that sanctions against North Korea will remain in force until complete nuclear disarmament of the country. Before the summit, trump said that Washington will refrain from imposing new sanctions, however, did not rule out such a possibility after the “complete, verifiable and irreversible” denuclearization.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” the text of the document, which was signed by trump and Kim Jong-UN during a “Historic meeting”, the experts from around the world call very weak, streamlined, without specifics, and his points – the repeated statement of 1994 and 2001.
Thus, in particular the Reuters news Agency described the meeting as “a deep fascination and no progress”.
Signed by the leaders of the United States and the DPRK statement does not contain any details of the process of denuclearization. It also fails to mention the international sanctions imposed in connection with Pyongyang’s nuclear program, which undermined North Korean economy.
No mention of signing a peace Treaty. The sides involved in the Korean war of 1950-1953 are technically at war because the conflict that has claimed millions of lives, ended only with an armistice agreement.
