Trump has promised a strengthening of economic sanctions against the DPRK

WASHINGTON, 12 Aug — RIA Novosti. Washington was considering strengthening economic sanctions against North Korea, said Friday the President of the United States Donald trump.

“Yes, we are considering additional sanctions at a very high level,” said trump on the question of the journalist after the meeting with U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson, national security Advisor to Herbert McMaster and U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley. According to trump, the new sanctions are the “most rigid”.

Saturday, August 5, the UN security Council unanimously adopted a new resolution on North Korea, which tightens sanctions against the country.

First, President Donald trump has threatened North Korea to respond “fire and fury” in the case of the DPRK is a real threat to the United States. In response, the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea (KCNA) reported that North Korean military is studying the possibility of a missile attack on the United States military facilities on the island of GUAM in the Western Pacific ocean. On that trump promised that if the North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN “do something with GUAM, North Korea will happen such an event, which no one has ever seen”.
