Ivanka Trump backs pressure on North Korea to denuclearise

President Trump said on Friday the United States would impose the “largest-ever” package of sanctions on North Korea, intensifying pressure on the reclusive country to give up its nuclear and missile programmes. The new U.S. sanctions were to be announced while Ivanka Trump is visiting South Korea.

Moon said South Korea cannot acknowledge North Korea as a nuclear state, and talks with the North on denuclearisation and improving inter-Korean relations must go hand in hand, his spokesman Yoon Young-chan told a news conference. Moon also said that close cooperation between the United States and South Korea is important for the talks, Yoon added.

Ivanka Trump’s visit to South Korea coincides with that of a sanctioned North Korean official, Kim Yong Chol, blamed for the deadly 2010 sinking of a South Korean navy ship that killed 46 sailors. His delegation will attend the closing ceremony and also meet Moon.
