Denuclearisation of Korean peninsula US Govt's top priority

January 10, 2018


US says next steps are denuclearization




A White House spokesperson has suggested that the US government would like to see denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula as the next steps following North Korea's participation in the Olympics in South Korea.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the North Korean participation "an opportunity for the regime to see the value of ending its international isolation by denuclearizing."

She added that denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is the US government's number-one priority and what it would like to see as the next steps.

US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said the United States welcomes Tuesday's inter-Korean meeting aimed at ensuring a safe, secure, and successful Winter Olympics.

But she also said the US and South Korean presidents agree to continue the campaign of maximum pressure on North Korea toward the goal of complete and verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres welcomed the inter-Korean agreement to hold military-to-military talks and reopen the military hotline. He said the re-establishment of such channels would be critical to lowering the risk of miscalculation or misunderstanding.

The UN chief welcomed North Korea's decision to send a delegation to the Olympics, and said the holding of the Games can foster an atmosphere of peace, tolerance and understanding among nations. He also said he hopes such engagement and efforts will contribute to the resumption of sincere dialogue leading to sustainable peace and denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.
