Quote from Kirby:  “We saw the comments coming out of Kim Jong Un’s meeting, comments coming from the Kremlin that there was no deal announced. We’ll take that with a grain of salt and we’ll watch.”

Details: He stressed that “any deal would be a violation of UNSC resolutions”.

Kirby also stated that the United States will certainly continue to talk with its partner countries at the UN about how to work together to hold Moscow and Pyongyang accountable if they move in this direction.
