North Korean nuclear freeze not “end goal,” State Department says

U.S. Department of State denies Trump administration mulling freeze deal

Washington on Tuesday denied that it viewed a possible North Korean freeze of its nuclear program as a solution to the issue of North Korea's denuclearization.

Speaking during a regular press briefing, State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said that Washington's end goal remained the DPRK's complete and verifiable denuclearization.
