Topic: Kerry says U.S., China discussing further sanctions on North Korea


By David Brunnstrom and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - The United States is discussing with China imposing further sanctions against North Korea as the reclusive country is "not even close" to taking steps to rein in its nuclear weapons program, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday. Speaking in the South Korean capital, Kerry said Washington had offered the North the chance of an improved relationship in return for signs of a genuine willingness to end its nuclear program. "Instead it continues to pursue nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles." DPRK stands for Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.
