US bill would force conditions before lifting N. Korea from terror list

A US lawmaker introduced a bill Tuesday that would prevent North Korea's removal from a US list of state sponsors of terrorism until it stops what the lawmaker described as nuclear and missile exports to rogue regimes. Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said North Korea should also halt training and financing of terror groups, stop counterfeiting US currency and release abducted Japanese citizens before the US lifts economic and political sanctions. "Our policy toward this regime cannot be based on the hope that it will actually honor its commitments but based instead on its actual performance," Ros-Lehtinen said.
