N. Korea: Lift US sanc­tions or nuke pro­gram restarts

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News - — WASH­ING­TON POST

North Korea has threat­ened to restart the de­vel­op­ment of its nu­clear weapons pro­gram un­less the United States lifts sanc­tions.

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion has in­sisted that sanc­tions and other pres­sures re­main on North Korea un­til it dis­man­tles its nu­clear pro­gram. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, how­ever, has al­ways de­manded a stepby-step process of de­nu­cle­ariza­tion that would in­clude lift­ing U.S. sanc­tions along the way.

In the past month, Py­ongyang has stepped up calls for sanc­tions re­lief, a call backed by South Korea.
