US Not Giving up on Diplomacy on N. Korea

The U.S. State Department says that Washington will not give up on using diplomacy to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear and missile programs.
 
Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said during a news briefing on Wednesday that the U.S. will not give up on diplomacy, which is still first and foremost, and the preferred approach.
 
The spokeswoman said that the department is "realistic" but also "optimistic" that diplomacy will resolve the issue, expressing satisfaction with the new UN Security Council resolution against the North.
 
Nauert pointed out that the Security Council adopted the resolution with a unanimous vote with China and Russia, expressing hope that the two nations will faithfully implement the new sanctions.

The comments follow President Trump's lukewarm response to the new UNSC resolution. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, he expressed doubts about the effectiveness of the new sanctions.
