“We are looking for irreversible denuclearisation”

by

During a visit to South Korea, Hillary Clinton announced new U.S. sanctions against Korea. The new measures aim to “discourage further provocative actions” following North Korea’s alleged sinking of a South Korean warship in March, killing 46 people—an act which Pyongyang denies. The new measures will affect the sale and purchase of North Korea’s arms and luxury goods and is intended to curb nuclear trade. Clinton said that she expects North Korea would “take certain steps that would acknowledge their responsibility” for the sunken warship.
