Pompeo: Sanctions stay in place until final denuclearization

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday he was “encouraged by the progress” made in his two days of talks in Pyongyang, but” progress alone does not justify relaxing the sanctions regime.” Speaking in Tokyo after briefing the foreign ministers of Japan, Taro Kono, and South Korea, Kang Kyung Wha, Pompeo stated: “Sanctions will remain in place until final, fully verified denuclearization, as agreed to by Chairman Kim (Jong Un) occurs.” North Korean officials earlier dismissed U.S. demands during the negotiations as “cancerous” and “gangster-like.”
