Trump designates North Korea as state sponsor of terrorism

트럼프, 北테러지원국 9년만에 재지정…'북한은 살인정권'

During the George W Bush administration North Korea was taken off Washington's states sponsors of terror list as part of a denuclearization deal.
The nuclear and missile upgrade obsessed regime is included back in it.
Meaning the door's flung open wider for more sanctions to be slapped on the rogue state.
Yu Joonhee starts us off with the implications of this measure by the U.S.

During a cabinet meeting on Monday,... President Donald Trump announced the U.S. will designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.
Saying it should have happened "a long time ago"... Trump accused the regime of supporting international terrorism... in addition to threatening the world with nuclear devastation.

(English)
"This designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on North Korea and related persons and supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime..."

He cited the murder of Kim Jong-un's half brother in Malaysia earlier this year,... by a pair of individuals suspected of acting under orders from North Korea.
Trump also referred to the death of American student Otto Warmbier... who was detained by Pyongyang for over a year-and-a-half... as well as other victims of North Korean oppression and brutality.
He said... the Treasury Department will announce the additional sanctions soon... which he promised will be of the "highest level".
The U.S. president ended his remarks by urging North Korea to be lawful,... and bring an end to its illegal nuclear and ballistic missile developments.
Following that meeting,... Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a White House press briefing... that the latest move will help dissuade third parties from supporting the regime.
Tillerson emphasized... it was part of a peaceful campaign of pressure... and the U.S. was ultimately hoping for a diplomatic solution to resolve tensions with the North.
Pyongyang's reinstatement on Washington's list of terror sponsors,... comes nine years after its removal by the George W. Bush administration... as part of a denuclearization deal which ultimate failed.
North Korea joins Iran, Sudan, and Syria on the blacklist... which bars them receiving U.S. aid... in addition to tougher financial restrictions.
