Trump Prolongs Sanctions on North Korea for One More Year Despite Thaw With Kim

US President Donald Trump has decided to prolong sanctions, introduced against North Korea's missile and nuclear tests following the December 2017 UN's resolution to strengthen anti-Pyongyang sanctions, restricting fuel imports and other trade. The day before the US president stressed that Pyongyang was taking agreed steps for easing sanctions.

The White House announced that US President Donald Trump decided to prolong anti-North Korea sanctions for one more year as a part of his "maximum pressure" policy toward the country.

In his earlier statement, Trump did not exclude the lifting of sanctions if the DPRK refused to use nuclear weapons, but the official policy of the United States is that sanctions will only be halted after a "full, verifiable and irreversible" denuclearization.

The move took place only a day after the US president announced during a rally in Minnesota that Pyongyang was following a path of denuclearization and had "stopped everything we wanted them to stop," adding that he and Kim Jong-un had "great chemistry" during the summit in Singapore on June 12.
