North Korea must ‘show some good faith’ for sanctions to be lifted: US official

After the Hanoi Summit ended in a no-deal two years ago, a US representative calls on Biden to be ‘more strategic’

The United States probably won’t lift sanctions against North Korea unless Pyongyang makes the first move and shows “some good faith,” a prominent U.S. lawmaker said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a Feb. 24 webinar hosted by the Institute for Corean-American Studies, Democratic Rep. Thomas Suozzi reportedly said that the Biden-Harris administration also needs to be “more strategic” when dealing with the DPRK.
