The Democratic People's Republic of Korea did not stop developing a nuclear program. This is reported by Reuters, referring to the UN report.

It is noted that independent experts within six months assessed the situation with the nuclear and missile programs of North Korea and came to the conclusion that Pyongyang continues to develop both programs.

Experts who prepared a special report for the UN Security Council stated that the DPRK continues the actions for which the UN Security Council imposed sanctions on Pyongyang in 2006.

Since then, these sanctions have been repeatedly extended and tightened up.

In particular, in September 2017, the UN Security Council imposed a total ban on the export of textile products from North Korea and limited Pyongyang's sale of oil products to 2 million barrels per year.

We recall, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un should determine the date for the final nuclear disarmament.

Earlier it became known that the US special services had received information that the DPRK was producing new intercontinental ballistic missiles.

On June 12, US President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong-un met in Singapore and signed a joint document.
