The U.S. will toughen its approach to North Korea

The United States, under the leadership of President Joseph Biden, will change its approach to engagement with North Korea and adopt a tougher stance. This was announced by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

According to Blinken, the U.S. side, among other things, will consider the possibility of new sanctions against North Korea, coordinated with its allies. In addition, the United States is going to make “diplomatic efforts” in this direction – the head of the State Department did not clarify what is meant by this wording. According to Blinken, the goal of the new policy is nuclear disarmament of the Korean Peninsula.

Earlier it was reported that North Korea may test intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in the first months of the new US administration under Joe Biden. The South Korean think tank noted that Pyongyang has in the past met a change in U.S. leadership with military provocations to test Washington’s response and attract the attention of the new administration.
