South Korean officials on Thursday backpedaled on their foreign minister’s proposal to lift unilateral sanctions from North Korea after backlash within the country and from U.S. President Donald Trump. On Wednesday, Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha told South Korean lawmakers the government was reviewing sanctions the South imposed on the North in 2010 following a deadly attack on a warship that killed 45 South Korean sailors. North Korea has long denied responsibility for the attack.
