U.S. pressure on North Korea will continue

U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Monday that the UN Security Council supports President Donald Trump’s optimism about the opportunity for a diplomatic solution in North Korea, but also his intention to keep up maximum pressure until there is “real progress” toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

His comments, quoted by The Associated Press, came in a conversation with reporters after briefing the Security Council on the North Korea situation.
