US envoy: Trump admin not going to do North Korea denuclearization 'incrementally'
[thehill.com]

President Trump’s special envoy for North Korea negotiations said Monday the United States would not agree to a phased approach for Pyongyang’s denuclearization.

"We are not going to do denuclearization incrementally," special envoy Stephen Biegun said in his first public remarks since last month’s summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "The president has been clear on that and that is a position around which the U.S. government has complete unity."

The comments, which Biegun made at the Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference, appear to be a shift from a speech he made prior to Trump and Kim’s Hanoi summit in which he said “we are prepared to discuss many actions that could help build trust between our two countries.”

Still, Biegun denied Monday the U.S. position on North Korea has hardened. “The Trump administration position has not hardened,” he said.

Biegun’s comments come as post-Hanoi headlines rack up about North Korea rebuilding the Sohae Satellite Launching Station in what analysts say appears to be a message to the Unite States.
