Trump: "North Korea supports terrorism"


11/22/2017


President Donald Trump returned North Korea to the list of states sponsoring terrorism. This would allow the United States to apply more sanctions and risks that create tension with Pyongyang's nuclear and missile program, Reuters reports.

The Republican president, who exchanged personal insults with North Korean leader Kim Jong-no, while not excluding the possibility of holding talks, said that the Ministry of Finance would announce additional sanctions against North Korea in the very near future.

The decision was voiced a week after Donald Trump returned from his 12-day trip to five Asian countries, during which the nuclear threat from the DPRK was one of the main topics for discussion.

"In addition to threatening the world with nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism, including killings on foreign territory," Trump told reporters at the White House.

This assignment of status (the sponsoring country of terrorism) imposes additional sanctions and penalties for North Korea and the people associated with the country and supports our campaign of maximum pressure to isolate the murder regime. "

Trump, who often criticized the policies of his predecessors against Pyongyang, said that such a designation for North Korea should have been made "a long time ago."

North Korea is developing nuclear weapons and missile programs in defiance of the sanctions of the UN Security Council, the country does not hide its plans to develop a nuclear-armed missile, through which it will be possible to strike at the mainland of the United States. The country had previously fired two missiles over Japan, and on September 3 held its sixth and largest nuclear test.

According to experts, the designation of the DPRK as a sponsor of terrorism will be more symbolic, because the country is already suffering from sanctions from the United States. According to the head of the State Department Rex Tillerson, this will help to dissuade third parties from supporting Pyongyang.

The United States has designated only three countries - Iran, Sudan and Syria - as state sponsors of terrorism.

Some experts believe that North Korea does not meet the criteria for appointment, which requires evidence that the state "has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism."

In his remarks, Trump recalled Otto Warmbier, a college student from Ohio, who died in June shortly after returning from North Korea, where he was held for more than a year.
