Remarks by Ambassador Philip S. Goldberg, Coordinator for Implementation of UNSC Resolution 1874
Coordinator for Implementation of UNSC Resolution 1874
QUESTION: You know that North Korea has recently launched some missiles. What is your view and comment?
AMBASSADOR GOLDBERG: I saw the same press report. I don’t have any details on it. I would wait until we have more details before commenting.
QUESTION: What is the Chinese position on economic sanctions to freeze funds?
AMBASSADOR GOLDBERG: I would leave the Chinese position to the Chinese and allow them to comment on what their position is. I know that the United States’ position is that we want all the various aspects of the resolution to work. It is our intention to fully implement the resolution. As you know there are provisions about various aspects that have been added to give us more ability to affect the situation. Those include economic and financial sanctions with the idea that we should return to a dialogue over denuclearization and non-proliferation. That is the process that is most important. We want to make sure that what we do collaboratively and as a world community helps to achieve that goal. Thanks.
