Today I'm announcing a new executive order I just signed that significantly expands our authorities to target individuals, companies, financial institutions that finance and facilitate trade with North Korea. North Korea's nuclear weapon and missile development is a great threat to peace and security in our world. And it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal rogue regime.
China, their central bank has told their other banks, that's a massive banking system, to immediately stop doing business with North Korea. That was a somewhat unexpected move, and we appreciate it. This is a complete denuclearization of North Korea that we seek, cannot have this as a world body any longer.
>> Mr. President, is dialogue still possible with North Korea? Is dialogue still possible?>> Thank you.>> Why not?>> Thank you.
