US to continue talks with DPRK: White House
    2019-03-08  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

WHITE HOUSE Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that the United States would continue to have conversations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).

“We are continuing to have conversations, as the president has said, we’ll see what happens,” Sanders said to the press.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said Tuesday in an interview with FOX Business Network that the United States would see whether the DPRK was still serious about negotiations and was committed to giving up its “nuclear weapons program and everything associated with it.”

“If they’re not willing to do it ... they’re not going to get relief from the crushing economic sanctions that have been imposed on them and we’ll look at ramping those sanctions up in fact,” he added.

U.S. President Donald Trump and DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un held their second summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Feb. 27-28, without reaching an agreement.

Nevertheless, the White House said the two leaders had “very good and constructive meetings” and discussed various ways to “advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts.”

Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also expressed the willingness that Washington would continue the conversation with Pyongyang.

But Trump on Wednesday also said that he would be “very disappointed” if reports on Pyongyang’s alledged efforts in rebuilding its rocket sites prove to be true.

U.S. media reported Tuesday that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) appeared to have started “rapid rebuilding” of the long-range rocket site at Tongchang-ri Launch Facility, citing an imagery analysis from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank.

“I would be very disappointed if that were happening. It’s a very early report ... We’ll take a look,” Trump told reporters.

The reported activity in the DPRK, however, did not seem particularly alarming, and certainly not on a scale resuming missile tests that have been suspended since 2017, Reuters said Tuesday citing a U.S. Government source. (Xinhua)
