9th September 2019
North Korea has expressed its willingness to resume nuclear talks with the United States later this month, but warned that the chances of reaching an agreement may end what Washington did not take a new approach
In a June 30 meeting with US President Donald Trump, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to reopen talks stalled since the failed February summit in Hanoi , but this has not happened despite repeated calls from Washington
North Korea’s deputy foreign minister, Choi Sun-hui, said in a statement published by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Monday that Pyongyang was ready for “comprehensive discussions” with the United States in late September at a time and place to be agreed between the two sides
Choi stressed that Washington needs to present a new approach or the talks will collapse again
A spokeswoman for the US State Department said: “We do not have any meetings with North Korea to announce at this time,” according to “Reuters
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday he hoped to return to nuclear disarmament talks with North Korea in the coming days or weeks
In April, Kim set a year-end deadline for the United States to show more flexibility in talks that collapsed in February over US demands that North Korea give up all its nuclear weapons and Pyongyang’s desire to ease US sanctions LINK
