The Atlantic Council held a series of panels on the Trump Administration’s use of economic sanctions as a foreign policy tool. Representatives from the State and Treasury Departments took part in the first discussion and also reacted to news that President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to meeting face-to-face regarding the country’s nuclear program.

They also said the administration’s maximum pressure campaign on the regime has shown an effect.
