This bill suggests that the Secretary of State re-designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. The country was officially taken off the State Department list back in 2008 amidst the Bush administration's attempts to convince Pyongyang that ending their nuclear weapons program was diplomatically advantageous.
The bill also calls for the continuation of sanctions against North Korea, as well as continued diplomatic non-recognition of North Korea, until the country has:
Stopped the illegal transfer of missile or nuclear technology to other countries;
Stopped assisting foreign terrorist organizations, counterfeiting U.S. currency, and/or engaging in unlawful narcotics traffic;
Released abducted Japanese nationals and the remaining prisoners of war from the Korean War;
Undertaken domestic actions regarding family reunification, penal reforms, refugee access, and religious organization communications;
Ceased cyber attacks against the U.S. and its allies.
Additionally, this bill instructs the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations to call for a Security Council resolution condemning North Korea’s nuclear weapon test in 2013. The resolution would include implementation of further sanctions and an inspection regime against North Korea.
