“Step up” North Korea sanctions enforcement, U.S. Senators urge Trump
Bipartisan letter accuses Trump administration of doing "little to hold North Korea to account"

The Trump administration has done "little to hold North Korea to account" after repeated missile tests, and should "step up" enforcement of sanctions on the country, a bipartisan pair of U.S. Senators wrote this week in a letter to the State and Treasury Secretaries.

The letter -- written by Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the foreign relations committee, and Senator Cory Gardner, the Republican chair of the committee's East Asia panel -- comes after North Korea conducted four rounds of missile tests last month, all while the coronavirus was spreading rapidly around the world.
