WASHINGTON, June 4 (Reuters) - Top U.S. Senate Democrats said on Monday that they would seek to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea if President Donald Trump reaches an agreement with Pyongyang that does not mandate complete denuclearization and other tough conditions.

Senator Chuck Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, and other party leaders, said in a letter to Trump released on Monday that any deal with North Korea must be permanent and a "robust" compliance inspection regime.
