The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States has established a special center to counter the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear program. This is reported by the press service of the CIA.
"In the new center, experienced staff of the department will be united so that they can use their knowledge, experience and creativity to confront North Korea," the report said.
The center is headed by CIA veteran, who is also an assistant to the director of the Office for Korean affairs. The new structure will interact with the entire American intelligence community, as well as with national security services.
"The creation of this center will make it possible to use the CIA's efforts more purposefully against the serious threats coming from North Korea," said CIA Director Michael Pompeo.
Earlier Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on the United Nations to increase pressure on North Korea.
