Washington | Thursday, Oct 11 2018 IST
US President Donald Trump said South Korea will not lift sanctions against Pyongyang without US approval.

This came after South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said that her country was considering lifting sanctions imposed on the North in 2010 following a deadly attack on a warship that killed 45 South Korean sailors, according to a QNA report in Washington.

Trump commented on Kang's remarks, saying "They won't do it without our approval. They do nothing without our approval." Kang later walked back her comments after they sparked criticism from some conservative lawmakers, claiming North Korea should first apologise for the attack.

The South Korean Foreign Ministry also officially denied that the government was reviewing the matter.

Trump has encouraged US allies to maintain sanctions on Pyongyang until it denuclearises as part of what his administration has termed a campaign of "maximum pressure" against North Korea's government.
