U.S. has plenty of options should North Korea not denuclearize, official says

As tensions mount, National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien says U.S. seeks "peaceful resolution" to DPRK issue

The U.S. has "plenty of tools in the toolkit" should North Korean leader Kim Jong Un not make good on his commitment last year to give up his nuclear weapons, the country's National Security Advisor warned on Sunday.

Speaking in an interview on CBS News's Face the Nation, National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien admitted he was "surprised" by recent remarks by North Korea's ambassador the UN in which he stated that his country would no longer discuss denuclearization with the U.S.
