U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said Tuesday the U.S. would see whether the DPRK was still serious about negotiations and was committed to giving up its "nuclear weapons program and everything associated with it."
Bolton said the DPRK will not get relief from crushing economic sanctions if they are not willing to do it.
In fact, the U.S. will look at ramping those sanctions up.
U.S. President Donald Trump and DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un failed to reach an agreement after holding a second summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27-28.
The White House said the two leaders had "very good and constructive meetings" and discussed various ways to "advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts."
Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also expressed Washington's willingness to continue the conversation with Pyongyang.
