Donald Trump will make the “bond” of the U.S. dollar the center for U.N. sanctions against North Korea, according to a new foreign policy proposal leaked Friday.
Trump will make it a top priority to “maintain the momentum” of a new U.
Ns. sanctions package that he promised during his presidential campaign.
The document, dated July 11 and titled “The Bond of Peace,” suggests the United States “take the lead in the world to prevent North Korea from acquiring nuclear weapons” by imposing “unprecedented sanctions” on the country.
Trump has vowed to pursue sanctions on North Korea in conjunction with China and Russia, which have long blocked the United Nations from imposing economic sanctions on the North.
The U.C.K., for its part, has expressed skepticism about any sanctions.
The Trump administration has not yet commented on the document.
The Borrowing Power proposal is likely to draw a sharp response from Russia, North Korea’s only major ally and trading partner.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in May that North Korea would be “destroyed in flames” if the U,N.
imposed any sanctions on it.
