North Korea was removed from the list (which includes Iran, Syria and Sudan) in 2008 in order to facilitate nuclear talks then taking place under the administration of President George W. Bush.
The designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on North Korea and related individuals, Trump told reporters, adding that the move would support "our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime that you've all been reading about and in some cases writing about". Several times, the DPRK has repeated it will preserve as self defense its nuclear arsenal as a response to the American hostility and its systematical maneuvers.
Designation under the above-referenced authorities also implicates other sanctions laws that penalize persons and countries engaging in certain trade with state sponsors. In mid-October, Trump turned down any diplomatic approach towards the DPRK in a message on his Twitter account.
Specifically, Klingner cites recent cyberattacks against US and South Korean targets, including the 2014 attack against Sony Pictures for producing a film critical of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Monday's announcement comes a little less than a week after Trump returned from a 12-day trip to Asia, where North Korea was at the top of his agenda.
Terror designation a way to hike North Korea pressure
The designation against North Korea will trigger additional sanctions.
Under sanctions legislation signed by Trump in August, the State Department was required to report to Congress earlier this month whether it will re-designate North Korea. "There's no evidence that points to the fact North Koreans are state sponsors of terror anywhere", Anderson added.
In February, Kim's potential rival and elder brother Kim Jong-Nam died after he was sprayed with a nerve agent in Kuala Lumpur airport, in an assassination blamed on Pyongyang.
The White House has declared it will not tolerate Kim's regime testing or deploying an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead to United States cities. Now there are three countries designated under these authorities: Iran, Sudan, and Syria. Countries placed on this list are determined by the secretary of state to have "repeatedly provided support for acts of worldwide terrorism" and can face economic consequences as a result.
Bush made a decision to remove North Korea from the list as part of a bid to save a nuclear deal with the country. "So they should be put back on the list".
