Statement by Press Secretary George Little on North Korea's Nuclear Capability

            “In today’s House Armed Services Committee hearing on the Department of Defense budget, a member of the committee read an unclassified passage in a classified report on North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.  While I cannot speak to all the details of a report that is classified in its entirety, it would be inaccurate to suggest that the North Korean regime has fully tested, developed, or demonstrated the kinds of nuclear capabilities referenced in the passage.  The United States continues to closely monitor the North Korean nuclear program and calls upon North Korea to honor its international obligations.”
