White House - Unclear how North Korea will respond to U.N. sanctions | Reuters

WASHINGTON There is not a lot of clarity on how North Korea will respond to new sanctions implemented by the United Nations, the White House said on Wednesday, saying the move is a response to provocative actions North Korea has taken in the past few months.

In a daily press briefing with reporters, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said it remained to be seen whether the increased pressure on North Korea would push the regime to change.
