US announces sanctions against North Korea – video
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced sanctions against North Korea today.
War is something that hopefully will be avoided, but allowing
belligerents to get away scot-free will only invite further evil
Reports the Financial Times: “The US announced on Wednesday that it would widen sanctions on North Korea to more individuals and companies, in its latest gesture of solidarity with South Korea over the sinking of one of its warships earlier this year.
“Speaking in Seoul, secretary of state Hillary Clinton said that Washington had done ‘intensive research’ on the new targets for sanctions and warned of serious consequences if there were any new attacks by Pyongyang.”
Clinton stressed at a news conference in Seoul that these measures are ‘not directed at the people of North Korea, who have suffered too long due to the misguided priorities of their government,’ but a response to Pyongyang’s ‘destabilizing, illicit, and provocative’ policies.”, according to ABC News.
