The US announced sanctions on two North Korean officials behind their country’s ballistic missile program on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

Key Points:

“The U.S. Treasury named the officials as Kim Jong Sik and Ri Pyong Chol.

It said Kim was reportedly a key figure in North Korea’s efforts to switch its missile program from liquid to solid fuel, while Ri was reported to be a key official in its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) development.”

The US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said in a statement:”Treasury is targeting leaders of North Korea’s ballistic missile programs, as part of our maximum pressure campaign to isolate (North Korea) and achieve a fully denuclearized Korean Peninsula.”
