Pence says US will continue to pressure North Korea

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –¬†US Vice President Mike Pence on Friday hailed what he called a step toward nuclear disarmament on the Korean peninsula, but said it was only one step and the United States would continue a “push campaign” against North Korea.

“Any talks, pledges and assurances from North Korea will be met with restraint, vigilance and verification,” Pence said in a statement. “We continue to prepare for the summit of the United States and North Korea, but as we said before, the campaign will continue unabated.”
