U.S. optimistic N. Korea will continue current state of not conducing nuke, missile tests: Pompeo Updated: 2019-03-14 18:00:52 KST


U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has expressed optimism North Korea will continue its current state of not conducting nuclear and missile tests.
During an interview with Texas radio station KPRC 2 on Wednesday, Pompeo also explained that the North's leader Kim Jong-un pledged during the Hanoi Summit that his regime will not carry out further nuclear and missile tests.
However, Pompeo also stressed the international society has to put pressure on the regime through sanctions to urge Kim to make the right strategic choice.
Such a remark can be interpreted as a warning, amid recent signs of increased activity at the regime's key missile launch site at Dongchang-ri.
Pompeo also stressed there's still much work to do, adding the regime has not yet fulfilled the commitment Kim made to President Trump.
Pompeo highlighted that denuclearization not only benefits the U.S., but the international community as a whole.
Speaking with other media outlets in Texas, Pompeo also urged Kim to take action, reiterating that action is the only thing that counts.
