Here’s What We Know About North Korea’s Nuclear Program
After last year’s US-North Korea summit in Singapore, US President Trump claimed that the nuclear threat from North Korea had ceased to exist. The Trump administration has since then acknowledged that the nuclear threat from North Korea certainly has not gone away, although a recent statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo implied that the US may be willing to lift sanctions on North Korea before the country has achieved full denuclearization.
With the second US-North Korea summit set to begin this week, it may be a good time to study North Korea’s nuclear program. Time’s Abigail Abrams provides an elaborate overview of the facts, which shows that the nuclear program may have actually expanded since the previous summit.
