This is the September 7, 2017 hearing on "Examining Various Sanctions Policy Options, Including the Potential for Increased Sanctions and to Further Assess the Existing Sanctions Imposed on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea" held before the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. From the opening statement of Mike Crapo: "As noted by Nikki Haley, our U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, in a speech Monday outlining 24 years of failed attempts to change North Korea's nuclear behavior, Kim is begging for war, and President Trump and his Administration can no longer follow a North Korean policy that has marked a quarter century of empty threats. So what can be done? Many seem to believe that there are no good options for responding to North Korea in whatever time is actually left before Kim can assemble a serviceable nuclear-tipped ICBM [intercontinental ballistic missile], but accepting Kim's North Korea as armed with nuclear weapons cannot be a serious option right now either. Today's hearing is about what can be done, short of military options, specifically focusing on what tools Congress may support Ambassador Haley's declared intention that only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this through diplomacy." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Adam Szubin, Anthony Ruggiero, and John Park.
