U.S. Lawmaker Wants North Korea Out Of The U.N. | The Precision

The chairman of the U.S. Senate’s East Asia
subcommittee is asking China and 20 other nations on Monday to clamp
down on North Korea by cutting ties, closing down diplomatic facilities
and working to oust the country from the United Nations. 

As
North Korea has defied U.N. Security resolutions to conduct nuclear and
ballistic missile tests, Washington has been scrambling for an
effective response. 
Many of President Donald
Trump’s fellow Republicans have been calling for tougher action, imposed
more quickly, including calling for stiff “secondary” sanctions and
other punishments for companies, banks and countries that do business
with North Korea. 
In a letter seen by Reuters
that will be sent to ambassadors from China and 20 other countries,
Republican Senator Cory Gardner, the subcommittee chairman, asked that
the countries immediately end diplomatic and economic relations with
Pyongyang. 
“Maintaining official diplomatic
relations with a regime that continues to defy international law and
threaten nations across the globe only serves to reward nefarious
behavior,” wrote Gardner. 
“In addition to
cutting off bilateral ties, I urge your government to support expelling
the DPRK from the United Nations,” the letter said. 
Gardner
recently introduced legislation that would impose a U.S. economic
embargo against any entity that does business with North Korea. 
The
U.S. military staged bombing drills with South Korea over the Korean
peninsula and Russia and China began naval exercises ahead of a U.N.
General Assembly meeting on Tuesday where North Korea’s nuclear threat
is likely to loom large. 
Gardner’s letter will be sent to
ambassadors to the United States from China, Brazil, Britain, Bulgaria,
Cambodia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Laos,
Malaysia, Mongolia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russia, Sweden
and Vietnam.
