THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Austin, Texas) ________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release June 19, 2000
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Since last September, when I announced the measures being implemented today to ease sanctions against North Korea, North Korea has maintained its moratorium on missile tests. These measures are supported by our close allies in the region and are part of the process of close coordination between the United States, Japan and South Korea recommended by former Secretary of Defense William Perry. We will continue to build on these efforts and on the recent North-South summit to achieve additional progress in addressing our common proliferation concerns.
