USA: Pompeo admits N. Korea still producing ‘missile material’ despite pledge

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «That is correct.» SOT, Ed Markey, US Senator: North Korea continues to produce missile material, nuclear bomb material, is that correct?» SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «Senator I'm trying to make sure I'm staying on the correct... yes, that's correct. Just trying to make sure I don't cross into classified information, I'm not trying to... Еще hesitate. Yes, they continue to produce missile material.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «May I answer that question in a different setting?» SOT, Cory Gardner, US Senator: «You can't answer that question here?» SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «Yeah. I'd prefer not to.» SOT, Cory Gardner, US Senator: «And why haven't we seen any designations recently?» SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «I can't answer that question.» Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended US foreign policy regarding North Korea, Iran and Russia while speaking before the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations in Washington DC on Wednesday. He repeatedly said that North Korea had pledged to a «fully verified denuclearisation» of the peninsula, but when asked by Senator Ed Markey later on, he admitted that North Korea continues «to produce missile material.» With regard to US President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Pompeo said that Trump «defended America's fundamental strategic interest in Syria and Ukraine, and I personally made clear to the Russians that there will be severe consequences for interference in our democratic processes.» Tension arose when Committee Chairman Bob Corker questioned President Trump's actions by saying that they «create tremendous distrust in our nation, among our allies.» Pompeo deflected the allegation, saying: «I disagree with most of what you said here. You somehow disconnect the administration's activities from the president's actions. They're one and the same.»
