U.S. National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien
U.S. National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien has renewed calls for North Korea to denuclearize, saying Pyongyang has to give up its nuclear program if it wants to reenter the world and have a great economy.
He made the remarks in an interview with CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday when asked about the North's recent military meeting on bolstering the country's nuclear deterrence.
O’Brien said the U.S. has managed to avoid conflict with North Korea over the last three and a half years, adding that President Donald Trump engaged in "some excellent personal diplomacy" with leader Kim Jong-un.
He went on to say that Washington will keep an eye on developments in the North and calibrate its response accordingly.
His remarks come after the North reported yesterday that leader Kim presided over a session of the Central Military Commission of the ruling Workers' Party to discuss "new policies for further increasing the nuclear war deterrence of the country."
