North Korea must return to talks for a ‘brighter future,’ US official says

The US will take “strong actions” to show that missile launch “blackmail” doesn’t work, David Stilwell says

A top U.S. official warned that North Korea “can’t just sit back and threaten” the United States, and that the Trump administration is taking “strong actions” to convince the DPRK to return to nuclear negotiations.

Speaking at a press conference in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, David R. Stilwell — the U.S. assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs — also commented on the U.S. government’s recent commitment to “disrupting” the DPRK’s weapons supply chain.
