US to Unveil ‘Toughest Sanctions Ever’ on N. Korea

US to Unveil  ‘Toughest Sanctions Ever’ on N. Korea

TOKYO - Washington will soon unveil its “toughest and most aggressive sanctions” ever against North Korea, US Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday after talks with Japan’s prime minister in Tokyo.
He also warned that North Korea, which will participate in this month’s Winter Olympics as part of a joint delegation with South Korea, would not be allowed to “hijack” the event with its “propaganda”.
“I’m announcing today that the United States will soon unveil the toughest and most aggressive round of economic sanctions on North Korea,” Pence said, standing alongside Shinzo Abe after talks on the threat posed by Pyongyang.
“Let the world know this: We will continue to intensify our maximum pressure campaign until North Korea takes concrete steps towards complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization,” he added. President Donald Trump has criticized the policy of previous US administrations towards North Korea and has already convinced the global community to significantly tighten sanctions against Pyongyang.
