Breaking News - U.S - NORTH KOREA Negotiation Is Underway United States and North Korea signal willingness to return to the negotiation. Tensions with North Korea and the U.S. have increased drastically in recent weeks as Congress voted overwhelmingly to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang for continued missile test launches despite several warnings. A top North Korean diplomat said Saturday that Pyongyang would be willing to meet with the Trump administration for negotiations “under the right conditions”. Last month, President Donald Trump opened the door to talks, saying he would be “honoured” to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un if the condition are right. The top North Korean diplomat, Choi Sun-hee who handles relations with the U.S., spoke briefly to reporters in Beijing en route to Pyongyang. She was travelling from Norway, where she led a delegation that held an informal meeting with former U.S. officials and scholars. Choi did not elaborate on what the North’s conditions are, but her comments raise the possibility of North Korea and the U.S. returning to negotiations for the first time since 2008, when six-nation talks over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program fell apart. When asked if talks were in the works with the new South Korean government as well, Choi said “we’ll see,” the New York Post reported.
