"Chairman Kim hasn’t yet demonstrated that he is prepared to fulfill the commitment that he made," U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said National Review Institute's 2019 Ideas Summit, ONAreports.
"With respect to sanctions, we will continue to enforce the UN Security Council resolutions. They are not American sanctions. These are UN Security Council resolutions passed unanimously by the Security Council, " he said.
Commenting on the meetings held between U.S. and North Korea, Pompeo said that there is a long way to go.
"There’s more work to do. Chairman Kim hasn’t yet demonstrated that he is prepared to fulfill the commitment that he made. But I continue to believe that hard work and diplomatic effort may well get us there. We’ve made a counter-proposal too. We’ve said that we will be there to ensure that there’s a brighter future for the North Korean people."
"This will be filled with uncertainty and there’ll be bumps in the road. But we have the toughest sanctions in the history – on North Korea – and I think the most promising diplomatic engagement, and we’re doing those both at the same time," Mike Pompeo said.
