U.S. lawmakers want Trump to report on North Korea nuclear programme

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican and Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill on Wednesday that would require President Donald Trump’s administration to provide a detailed report on North Korea’s nuclear programme to set a “baseline” for progress on talks with Pyongyang.

The bill, seen by Reuters before its public release, is one of a series of efforts by members of Congress to have some say in negotiations ahead of Trump’s upcoming summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.
