US to unveil new North Korea sanctions amid continued deadlock at the UN

More sanctions unlikely to deter Pyongyang from testing nuclear-capable weapons, expert says

The U.S. is preparing another round of sanctions targeting North Korea, a White House official said Thursday, as Washington, Seoul and Tokyo look to bolster “extended deterrence” in the face of Pyongyang’s repeated missile tests.

U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan teased the new measures during an event in Seoul co-hosted by The JoongAng Daily and the Washington-based think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
