Summits

This Sunday, May 19, 2019 satellite image provided by Maxar Technologies shows the North Korean cargo ship "Wise Honest," center, in Pago Pago, American Samoa. North Korea's U.N. ambassador says the Trump administration should consider the possible consequences its seizing of the North Korean cargo ship could have on relations between the two countries and immediately return the vessel. The vessel was first detained in April 2018 by Indonesia while transporting a large amount of coal. The U.S. announced May 9, 2019, that it had seized the ship because it was carrying coal in violation of U.N. sanctions, a first-of-its kind enforcement action that came amid a tense moment in relations with North Korea.
