U.S. lawmakers are in the process of turning the screws on Pyongyang even tighter than they are now.
A subcommittee within the House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill on Thursday that would strengthen existing sanctions on North Korea, with the goal of preventing the North from further developing its nuclear and missile weapons programs.
The bill says the State Department should draw up a blacklist of North Korean officials who are perpetrators of human rights violations.
It also suggests the president consider labeling the North as a nation that launders money.
A clause, which expands sanctions to third parties that do business with North Korea, was not included.
