Shutting the refinery, the largest and oldest on the U.S. East Coast, would cost hundreds of jobs and squeeze gasoline supplies in the busiest, most densely populated corridor of the United States. The refinery, which could still change its plans, is also expected to begin layoffs of the 700 union workers at the plant as early as Wednesday, the sources said.

The unidentified North Korean foreign ministry spokesman denounced U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's remarks on Sunday that more than 80 percent of the North Korean economy has been affected by sanctions.
