White House completes North Korea policy review, emphasizes ‘practical’ approach

Biden administration confirms policy review process is complete, appears to reject Trump and Obama-era strategies

The U.S. has completed its policy review on North Korea, the White House confirmed on Friday, reiterating a long-held American goal to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, but with a “calibrated, practical approach.”

Confirmation that the inter-agency policy review had been completed, which commenced shortly after President Biden’s inauguration, came as The Washington Post revealed a detailed snapshot of the new direction sought by the White House.
