The Wall Street Journal: U.S. defers ramping up sanctions on North Korea in race to save summit

WASHINGTON—The U.S. decided to defer launching a major new sanctions push against North Korea, part of a flurry of weekend moves by both sides aimed at reviving a summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The White House was prepared to announce the ramped-up sanctions regime Tuesday but decided Monday to indefinitely delay the measures while talks with North Korea about the summit proceed, a U.S. official said, citing progress in efforts to repair diplomatic relations between Washington and Pyongyang.

Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself.
