SEOUL (Reuters) - Sanctions against North Korea will remain in place until Pyongyang can assure concerned parties such as South Korea that “complete denuclearisation has been achieved”, the South’s foreign minister said on Wednesday.
Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said South Korea expected to see “concrete action” by North Korea to “live up to its complete denuclearisation commitment”, in return for guarantees of its security and other efforts for peace.
“Meanwhile, the sanctions will remain in place until we are assured that complete denuclearisation has been achieved,” Kang told a news conference in Seoul.
