Special Advisor Einhorn (Mar. 2): "Including in New York, where we are working hard to get a Security Council presidential statement that makes clear that North Korea's uranium enrichment program is a violation both of UN Security Council resolutions and the September 2005 Six-Party Joint Statement. So we are working together very closely on North Korea, and I've come here to consult on North Korea."

"The United States government, the Obama Administration, continues to support the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. We support a nuclear weapons free Korean peninsula. That has been our approach that remains as our approach."

"We have no plan and we have no intention to deploy the US tactical or other nuclear weapons in South Korea. Moreover, we don't believe that there is a military need to do so. The United States and South Korea can have a robust, effective deterrent without the deployment of US nuclear weapons in South Korea."

"We're working hard to get a Security Council's presidential statement that makes clear that North Korea's Uranium enrichment program is a violation both of UN Security Council Resolutions and the September 2005 six-party joint statement."
