The White House confirmed that U.S. sanctions will remain in place on North Korea unless the country agrees to abandon its nuclear program.

During a press briefing Monday, Press Secretary North Korea announced the U.S. will not remove its sanctions and may even increase its maximum pressure campaign if denuclearize talks fail.

Sanders added, U.S. diplomats are continuing negotiations with North Korean officials at the DMZ border.

She also defended the president’s decision to impose tariffs on Canada, Mexico and the EU, saying our steel and aluminum industries are critical to our national security and need to be protected.
