UNITED NATIONS (AN) — Despite two summits to negotiate North Korea's denuclearization, talks between Washington and Pyongyang deadlocked. The sticking point? Nine sanctions resolutions approved by the U.N. Security Council in a dozen years.
U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un cut short a two-day summit at the end of February at Hanoi, Vietnam, their second meeting in less than a year. They went home telling contradictory accounts of why they failed to reach agreement on dismantling North Korea's nuclear weapons.
