US believes North Korea continues to produce nuclear weapons

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The United States believes that North Korea continues to manufacture nuclear weapons, said Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and Pacific Affairs David Stillwell at a Senate hearing.

When asked by one of the senators whether Pyongyang continues to produce nuclear weapons, Stillwell answered: “I think so, they continue.”

He confirmed that the administration’s policy remains the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and that sanctions against the DPRK can only be lifted when progress is made towards this goal.

As previously reported, Trump did not rule out a new meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un before the end of this year. The leaders of the two countries have already met three times – in Singapore and Hanoi, as well as in the demilitarized zone between South Korea and the DPRK.
